Reid’s Other Leading Nightmare: Sue Lowden

Danny Tarkanian was not the only GOP Senate candidate from Nevada upset with Harry Reid’s remarks yesterday. Sue Lowden also made a statement demanding Reid apologize for his comparison of opponents of the current healthcare reform to defenders of slavery:

“Now, he compares the majority of Nevadans opposing his government-run health care scheme to proponents of slavery. … Senator Reid should apologize — once again — for his unfortunate comments about our citizens.”

The currently leading candidate, Lowden has polled ahead of Danny Tarkanian in the last two Mason-Dixon primary polls. The latest poll, conducted from 11/30-12/02, shows the former State Senator ahead of Tarkanian 25-24, with 33 percent undecided.  The same poll indicated that Lowden was ahead of Reid by 10 points in the general election, while Tarkanian was ahead by 6 points.  Both candidates claim to be pro-life and fiscally conservative — Lowden is former President of Santa Fe Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Given the close margins and the chance of knocking off the Senate Majority Leader, this race will be interesting to watch.
