U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle’s first general election television ad blames Sen. Harry Reid for Nevada’s record high unemployment.
The ad uses somber music and stark images of people in unemployment lines and "closed" signs in front of stores to demonstrate the state’s dismal economy.
During Reid’s time as the Democratic leader of the Senate, Nevada’s unemployment rate has skyrocketed from 4.4 percent to 14 percent, the highest in the nation.
The ad also notes that Nevada has lost 135,000 jobs since Reid became the Senate majority leader in 2005.
The 30-second spot ends with this written message: "Help is on the Way" followed by Angle’s website address.
Interestingly, "Help is on the way" is the same theme Democrat John Kerry used in his failed 2004 presidential campaign.
