Sharron Angle, winner of the Republican U.S. Senate primary in Nevada and now tasked with knocking off Majority Leader Harry Reid in November, is making the rounds in Washington this week — mainly enlisting foot soldiers for the fall campaign and beating the bushes for financial support. With a reported $25 million in the bank, Reid won’t go quietly or cheaply. So Angle is dialing for dollars and, though she doesn’t say it out loud, reassuring listeners she’s not a nut from the right-wing fringe — certain to be Reid’s line of assault. Though Angle has in the past taken positions on Social Security and other issues that certainly would invite liberal attacks, she is wisely characterizing the race as a referendum on Reid and his record. The Nevada contest is likely to turn on the diminutive former teacher’s ability to keep the focus there.
