Pro-Immigration Group battles Tea Party Hopeful, Sharron Angle

In an attempt to dissuade Nevada voters from electing Republican Senate candidate, Sharron Angle, pro-immigration groups launched ads against the Tea Party hopeful. They are concerned with the misrepresentation of immigrants as synonymous to “criminals and thugs” in ads sponsored by Republicans. Angle, who has tried to link her democratic opponent, Harry Reid, to illegal immigration, said that she was campaigning against what she believes is a “porous” border and not an anti-Hispanic campaign. The LA Times reports that while Angle had a substantial lead among white voters, 2/3 of the Latino vote in Nevada went to Reid, helping him defeat Angle and remain Senator.
