Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid isn’t backing off his assertion that he doesn’t know how anyone of “Hispanic heritage could be a Republican.” This shows at least two things: 1.) Reid views the Hispanic vote as crucial to his reelection bid and 2.) There is a candidate in the Nevada Senate race who is given to saying ridiculous things and it is not necessarily Sharron Angle.
UPDATE: A commenter below makes a very good point: Brian Sandoval, Republican candidate for governor of Nevada, is a Hispanic Republican. His Democratic opponent? Rory Reid, the Senate majority leader’s son.
