Majority Leader Harry Reid Re-elected in Nevada

Wednesday, 03 Nov 2010 12:49 AM

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is going back to Congress.

The Democratic leader seized a fifth term Tuesday after a vicious battle with tea party star Sharron Angle.

The race was a closely watched marker in a year when resurgent Republicans sought to take control of Capitol Hill.

Reid overcame a litany of challenges: He was unpopular at home, and Republican Angle blamed him for Nevada's devastated economy that leads the nation in unemployment, bankruptcies and foreclosures.

Reid promised to return the state to prosperity, and he depicted Angle as a fringe conservative whose policies would hurt Nevada families.
