Nevada U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle enlisted another flavoured political operative Tuesday to help steady a effort? that has been slowed by maturation pains and missteps, including some of her own making.
The staff move was announced on the same day Senate bulk Leader Harry Reid began a fresh round of live internet TV ads criticizing Angle as an Ultra. Angle’s campaign responded swiftly with a statement blaming Reid for Nevada’s dismal economy, a sign the campaign is taking on a new urgency in a race that is Isaac Mayer Wise wide open.
 Angle was a come-from-behind winner in the June 8 primary, and the former Reno legislator was slow to expand from a mom-and-pop operation to a multimillion-dollar campaign capable of going punch-for-punch with Reid, who intends to provoke $25 million for the contest. However, she surprised Democrats by raising more money than Reid between April and June, though Reid has more money in the bank, $9 million to her $1.8 million.
 

Recent polls internet tv show the race is a dead heat. Reid has been trying to frame Angle as a fringe conservative who would dismantle Social Security and Medicare, while Angle has been blaming Reid for the state’s indisposed economy and accuses him of beingness out of touch with problems at home. The state leads the commonwealth in joblessness, foreclosures and bankruptcies.
Since pickings the primary, Angle has granted most of her interviews to conservative media outlets. She says her public agenda is being driven by the need to raise money and she gets the best takings for her time on conservative programs, which drive up donations.

On Monday she told Fox News, “We needed to have the press be our friend. … We treasured them to ask the questions we want to answer, so that they report the news the way we want it to be reported.”
Last month she was forced to backtrack after referring to a $20 billion victims’ compensation fund for the Gulf oil spill as a “slush fund.” Reid’s new ad faults her for denouncing the fund, as well as saying in interviews she would eliminate federal environmental and energy agencies.

The league is working on two six-team divisions and the possibilities are enticing. Nebraska and Iowa in the West? Penn State and Ohio State in the East?
Competitive balance and rivalries will be considered along with geography, with a nine-game league schedule possibly coming in a few years.
