Republicans Hope to Hone Their Comback by Defeating Sen. Reid

Looks like if the Republicans play their cards right, Sen Harry Reid might be heading for a defeat in his 2010 re-election bid.

From the WSJ:

Sen. Reid, perhaps the most-vulnerable Democrat who will face re-election in a midterm race that is likely to favor his party once again, began interviewing campaign managers last week. The Senate majority leader also recently stepped up fund-raising.

A recent Research 2000 poll of likely voters put his approval rating at 38% and his disapproval rating at 54%, a possible reflection of voters' displeasure with gridlock and partisanship in Washington. And while Nevada broke for President-elect Barack Obama by 12 percentage points in November, the state voted for President George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004.

By taking out Reid, they will loose a crucial player in executing Obama's grand illusion.
