Speaking of Nevada

Is Club for Growth about to chalk up another win? The latest poll results for the GOP primary in Nevada's 2nd House District show Dean Heller and Sharron Angle (the Club's candidate) tied at 32%. Late in July, a different poll showed Angle down by 16 points.

As the article notes:

Eric Herzik, a University of Nevada, Reno political science professor, said he was surprised by the latest poll results.

He said Angle has clearly benefited from television ads, paid for by the Club for Growth, that portray Gibbons and Heller as liberals.

The group, which favors limited government and taxes, is credited with helping conservative Tim Walberg defeat moderate incumbent Rep. Joe Schwarz in Tuesday's Republican primary in Michigan.

"The ads have just hammered them (Heller and Gibbons), and she (Angle) has pointed out she is the most conservative candidate - and she is," said Herzik, a Republican. "They are running negative ads because they work."

Will Angle win? We'll know later this evening.
