Sarah Palin Appears At A Tea Party Rally In Nevada To Persuade Voters To Oust Harry Reid


Sarah Palin appears at a Tea Party rally in Nevada to persuade voters to oust Harry ReidAfter campaigning with her former presidential running mate John McCain, Sarah Palin energized a Tea Party crowd in Nevada on Saturday, urging them to "take back America."

The choice of state was not accidental, as Nevada is the home state of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat. In fact, Palin stressed Reid will have to explain his voting record when he comes back to the state to campaign for reelection this fall.

The former Alaska governor also expressed hope that the big government politics and the big spending promoted by this Congress will come to an end in November.

"You’re fired!" Palin told a cheering crowd of some 9,000 Tea Party activists gathered in a small former mining town south of Las Vegas.

Some polls are showing Reid may be losing ground in the Silver State, due in part to a persistently high unemployment rate. However, Democrats hope that if the healthcare reform proves popular, he and other Democrats who currently appear vulnerable will be able to hold on to their seats.

To that end, President Obama was in Iowa City last week trying to convince Americans that the enacted reform will benefit them and their businesses in the long run.
