Saturday, 23 Oct 2010 09:26 PM

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Outside interest groups have poured nearly $5.2 million into the race between Democratic Sen. Harry Reid and Republican Sharron Angle in recent days, and are expected to spent millions more on advertising before the Nov. 2 election.

According to the Center for Responsive Politics, the expenditures between Oct. 8 and Oct. 21 bring total outside spending in the race to $13.5 million.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that spending comes on top of the $42 million that Reid and Angle had spent through Oct. 15.

The Center for Responsive Politics says only two Senate races, in Pennsylvania and Colorado, have drawn more independent expenditures.

Pro-Republican groups overall have spent $7.8 million in Nevada, while pro-Democratic groups have spent nearly $4.1 million.
