Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is going back to Congress.

The Democratic leader seized a fifth term Tuesday after a vicious battle with tea party star Sharron Angle.

The race was a closely watched marker in a year when resurgent Republicans sought to take control of Capitol Hill.

Reid overcame a litany of challenges: He was unpopular at home, and Republican Angle blamed him for Nevada's devastated economy that leads the nation in unemployment, bankruptcies and foreclosures.

Reid promised to return the state to prosperity, and he depicted Angle as a fringe conservative whose policies would hurt Nevada families.

    I just don't understand how people in Nevada could overlook his track record! At one time the Las Vegas newspapers were calling for a recall election on him, and then they elect him again! Strange!

    If you check in to this race the voting machiens were monitored and controlled by the corrupt SEIU and his idiot son. Harry Reid cheated which is typical of his type of unethical and corrupt democrats. Unions beware America is done with your tactics and yes you do fall under the RICO ACT as criminals.

    How do I express my great sorrow that the good people of Nevada are so ignorant. What a sad day for the State and the Country.

    There were reports that when you cast your electronic ballot that his name was already selected. People were complaining that they tried to switch his name to the other and couldn't until about the 5th try with even the judges trying to help them. It's no wonder he won....
