Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle's confidence remains unbowed, even as many predict that her battle against Harry Reid today will be a nail-biter.
In an Election Day release, Angle seemingly speaks of her impending victory, one that will supposedly signify an important defeat of both the GOP establishment as well as the power of President Obama.
Though she does indeed hold a lead over Reid in the polls, her current margin is less than 3 percentage points. Early voting numbers, which reportedly are set to account for around 65% of the expected turnout, have attested to the fact that the race certainly still hangs in the balance
Sharron Angle's memo, from Time:
For one night - tonight - what happens in Vegas, will not stay in Vegas.
The victory of Sharron Angle over Harry Reid will be heard far beyond the city limits and far beyond Nevada. It will be heard all over the nation and it will be watched very closely on Pennsylvania Avenue.
Sharron Angle was the one that Harry Reid wanted to face, but she was more than he bargained for. The resilience of this grandmother from Reno is motivation for grassroots candidates throughout America and proof that the establishment is not all powerful.
Sharron was the Democrats #1 target and Harry Reid unloaded endless attacks on her for months. But the more he attacked, the stronger her support grew.
Going into Election Day, Sharron closed strong and peaked at the right time. She has now led in every one of the last 8 polls conducted on this race.
Tonight, she will become the first woman in history to be a U.S. Senator from the state of Nevada.
Against all odds, she will have defeated President Obama's right hand man. Instantly, she becomes the symbol of America's disapproval with President Obama and a warning to every member of the U.S. Senate to no longer side with the wishes of Obama over the wishes of their own constituents.
