Harry Reid Toppled Sharron Angle In Nevada Senate Election With Many Votes From Registered Republicans

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid toppled Republican rival Sharron Angle in Nevada’s midterm election last month with support from a perhaps surprising voting bloc, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
According to the Silver State-based outlet:

Preliminary figures show just 2,000 more Democrats than Republicans voted in Nevada’s general election, the secretary of state’s office said Monday. 

Because there were 60,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans at the time of the election, the figures are a clear indication that many Republicans cast votes for Democrat U.S. Sen. Harry Reid rather than for his Republican opponent, Sharron Angle, a secretary of state spokeswoman said.

Reid’s margin was a surprise in a race where a succession of polls showed a dead heat. But he had been there before, re-elected by 428 votes in 1998. 

Reid’s platform was power.
