Gubernatorial Debate Follow-up
Gubernatorial Debate Follow-up

AIR DATE: October 14, 2010

Rory Reid and Brian Sandoval went toe to toe at their second debate of the election season. Rory still trails Sandoval by double digits in the polls so will the debate make a difference?

Meanwhile in the senate race Sharron Angle has caused some stir for a semi-secret meeting with Tea Party foe Scott Ashjian. In that meeting, Angle criticized the Republican Party. What made the meeting more interesting, however, was when she offered to use her political clout to benefit Ashjian should she be elected. He need only drop out of the senate race to make that happen. So Sharron Angle, who sharply criticized Harry Reid for making back-room deals was caught red handed making a back room deal herself.

We talk with our political pundits for a debate follow-up and a look at the latest developments in the U.S. Senate race.

Is anyone sick of the same old politicians? I have been listening to the interview with the two candidates for governor of Nevada. Neither of them has yet to answer directly to direct questions. The answers are either to say "I have a plan" (which is never delinieated), or to ignore the question at hand and answer a phatom question that was not asked. Both of them deserve only to go back home and ignore the race.

I here you loud and clear. The amount of money needed to win one of these races lends itself to trying to please everyone. Suprising we only still have 2 real parties. Election reform is a must. I have to choose and I am leaning to Reid, we have to start changing , as a community , from growth for the sake of growth ( money ) to a quality of life society.

We have Public roads, Public Police, Fire Dept, Schools, Street lights, signs ..... why is our health care still middle managed, for profit? Nevadans need a state public health care insurance system.

Tea Party activists have their own agenda, to suppress the plans in Washington of both parties. To shrink government and return dignity to the middle class and good paying jobs to all Americans. Tea party candidates are not beholden to Sen. Reid or Minority speaker John Boehner and any associates and will not bend to the will of Washington elites. Both parties must be held accountable specifically to giving Amnesty to illegal aliens and the Hundreds of billions its costing taxpayers. Those lawmakers who ignore the new course for the people will be removed from office as many incumbents will be this November. Give Tea Party candidates a chance to prove their worth and not listen to the same old, tired rhetoric of the usual, entrenched politicians. Even now Tea Party candidates must abide by the rules of the American people, as they are not immune from losing their seat.
