Reid holds his Senate seat in Nevada

“Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid swept to victory tonight, relying on his formidable campaign organization to blunt Republican enthusiasm that appeared poised to carry Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle to office,” reports the Las Vegas Sun.

“Democrats at party headquarters in Las Vegas leapt to their feet amid huge cheers when multiple news organizations began to call the race for Reid.”

Reid, speaking at a victory rally in Las Vegas: “Today Nevada chose hope over fear. Nevada chose to move forward, not backwards. Nevada made this choice because we know it’s not us versus them. It’s about every Nevadan, all of us, in this together ... This race has been called, but the fight is far from over.” Reid appears to have won by five percentage points.
