Latest ad wave in Senate race

A fresh batch of advertisements is hitting the airwaves in Nevada variously promoting and attacking the candidates in the state’s sizzling Senate race.

The supermodel may be gone but the Sharron Angle campaign has a replacement ad with the same message: Sen. Harry Reid lives a contrasting lifestyle to many Nevadans.

The previous ad, which mocked Reid’s wealth, was pulled after a copyright claim on at least one of the photos that was used. According to YouTube, the claim was filed by Zuffa LLC, the Las Vegas parent company of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

The photo in question is believed to be one of Reid and supermodel Marisa Miller likely taken when Reid attended UFC 116 in July at the MGM Grand. Another photo from the event shows the senator in the same suit. UFC president Dana White is a Reid supporter, and with UFC fighter Chuck Liddell attended a Reid get-out-the-vote rally this week at UNLV.

Meanwhile, the pro-Reid Service Employees International Union unveiled an ad portraying a woman at different stages of her life and saying Angle’s "dangerous ideas would make her life worse — at every stage."

Angle, the ad says, "is too dangerous to have real power over real people."

Meanwhile, the conservative Citizen Link and the pro-life Susan B. Anthony Fund, have produced a pro-Angle spot showing various people declaring support for the Republican candidate, saying Angle "speaks for me."
