LAS VEGAS -- Nevada's largest newspaper has endorsed Republican Sharron Angle's bid for U.S. Senate against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
The endorsement Sunday from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, an influential newspaper that has pounded on Reid and praised Angle, was not unexpected.
In its endorsement, the newspaper deemed the election a clear choice between Angle, who supports limited government, and what it described as Washington's big spending and partisan bickering.
The editorial says Reid hitched his fortunes to President Barack Obama's "failed" economic playbook.
The conservative-leaning Review-Journal endorsed Reid in 2004, when he faced underdog Republican opponent Richard Ziser.
A recent poll from the newspaper shows Reid and Angle tied with 43 percent support.
