Angle Allies Outspend Lowden

More

Tea Party-backed Senate candidate Sharron Angle is outspending the GOP frontrunner in Nevada, with the help of her allies, Hotline OnCall's Stephanie Palla reports. Namely, Tea Party Express and the DC-based Club for Growth are each spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on ads and mail for Angle, who, after having been nowhere on the radar two months ago (collecting 5% in an April 5-7 poll), is now statistically tied with frontrunner Sue Lowden, according to the latest polling in NV.


It's another instance of the Club for Growth dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars into a race and, combined with Tea Party support, substantially affecting the dynamics of an election this cycle.

Whoever wins this primary will challenge Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the fall.
