Harry Reid Kicks Off Campaign Tour In Searchlight To A Crowd of Approximately 100

The AP generously reported that Reid kicked off his campaign tour to “more than 100 cheering friends and supporters”.

“You can’t escape who you are. My roots are here and no one can take that away from me,” Reid told a crowd of more than 100 cheering friends and supporters inside the Searchlight Nugget casino, about 60 miles south of Las Vegas.

Nevada’s Democratic senator spoke at the start of a three-day campaign bus tour through the state he has represented since 1986. Reid calls it his “Driving Nevada Forward” tour and says he plans to discuss issues including jobs, energy and health care.

His “smart grid” reference was to a $138 million federal stimulus grant Nevada’s main electric utility received in October to help create a network of two-way meters that exchange real-time information between the company and customers about the cost and use of energy.

Reid dismissed Republican criticisms that the health care reform law he helped push through the Senate amounts to the federal takeover of health care. Reid said he expects the measure will reduce the national debt by $1.3 trillion over the next 20 years.

Obamacare is going to reduce the debt by 1.3 trillion? Woohoo! Yayyyyy!


Dingy also took the occasion to mock Sarah Palin, although Allahpundit reports that his jibes weren’t as nasty as they usually are.

…maybe, like most people who are facing doom, he’s mellowing a bit as the end approaches.

Video here.

(I love that Greta’s watching Sarah’s back).

10,000+ teapartiers rallied in Searchlight on March 27th for the Teaparty Express’s “Showdown in Searchlight”. A crowd of 100 supporters show up for Harry Reid’s kickoff rally in his hometown.

Draw your own conclusions.

  3. AP is running a story by Ron Fournier that basically states the tea party is nothing. Just a small group of people angry at their government. AP, CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN and others suffer from wishful thinking. They wish that all of us would love socialism. They wish all of us would love Dear Leader the jugeared idiot. For every one of the people who actually attend a tea party event, there are probably 10,000 who wish they could be there. The media, the watch dogs for the public? No, they are the new PRAVDA for Obama.

  6. 100 people? That number is inflated by all the media present, which do not count. There were probably only 5 supporters present.
