Closing argument ads out in U.S. Senate race

With one week to go before Election Day, both Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his Republican rival Sharron Angle have begun their closing arguments with a pair of new ads out today.

Reid’s ad stresses the same theme: Angle is extreme and dangerous.

But the ad closes with Reid’s last minute push to put stress on the fractures already evident in the Republican Party.

“As a Republican, I can't see voting for Sharron Angle,” Las Vegas executive Morgan Bunker says in the ad.

Meanwhile, Angle’s campaign borrowed a tactic broadly employed by Reid’s campaign this year: Using the candidate's own words against him.

Pulling from a long list of Reid gaffes, the ad attacks him for his remarks including the war is lost, Hispanics shouldn’t be Republicans and a racially insensitive description of President Obama.
