Times: Tea Party’s #1 Target Harry Reid

Sunday, 04 Apr 2010 10:32 PM

The New York Times will report Monday that Harry Reid is the main target for the Tea Party movement.

In an article headlined “Tea Party Groups Make Harry Reid Target No. 1,” the paper states that “In a matter of weeks, this state has become ground zero for Tea Party members, who understand that as a symbol of the movement’s power, you cannot get much bigger than beating the Senate’s top Democrat.”

The Times reveals that polls show Reid can be defeated this November, but adds that a lack of a unifying candidate to oppose is making the race questionable.

The paper states:

“Tea Party leaders had been planning on uniting behind the Republican candidate to defeat Mr. Reid. But there are 12 candidates in the primary in June, and not one seems to be attracting a majority of Tea Party support. One of the three front-runners, a former state Republican chairwoman, has clashed with a core Tea Party constituency in the past over her refusal to certify delegates for Ron Paul in the 2008 presidential race. . . .

“Polls suggest the three front-runners are Sue Lowden, the former state Republican chairwoman; Danny Tarkanian, the son of the legendary former men’s basketball coach for the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and the owner of a small real-estate business; and Sharron Angle, a former state assemblywoman.”
