We're checking in this week on a number of election races around the country. Today, we focus on the dead heat between U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid — Democrat from Nevada — and his Republican challenger, Sharron Angle. Angle is a former Nevada assemblywoman and a Christian conservative who has been backed by the Tea Party. Reid is a longtime incumbent who became the Democratic leader in the Senate after Tom Daschle lost his re-election bid in South Dakota in 2004. NPR's David Greene talks to Anjeanette Damon, who covers politics for the Las Vegas Sun.
