Sharron Angle Rewrites Her Policy Positions In Nevada Senate Race

Posted: Updated:

CRISTINA SILVA, Associated Press

LAS VEGAS - Republican U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle is distancing herself from an unusual foe -- her own words.

Angle has repeatedly claimed in recent weeks that she never vowed to end Social Security or federal benefits for veterans.

But Democrats have circulated recordings of her making those very points in early campaign stops.

The shift in those positions and others shows Angle's ongoing evolution from a hard-right state legislator to a mellower national candidate.

It's also letting her rival, Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, give Angle's positions center stage in TV spots that brand her as "too extreme."
