Here are some of the highlights:
- Angle has ties to the far-right Constitution Party, promoters of Christian Reconstructionism (i.e., they want to impose biblical law on the U.S.).
- Christian Reconstructionist groups are supporting Angle and helping to fund her campaign.
- Angle has publicly stated that she thinks alcohol should be illegal, and her website lists banning pornography as one of her goals.
- It appears that Angle only became a Republican when she realized that she was unelectable running as an Independent American Party candidate.
Early polling shows Angle even or even slightly ahead of Reid. This is not a case where we can simply dismiss Angle as too extreme to get elected. With voter apathy likely to be high for many on the left, Angle has a fairly good chance of winning this race.
