Sharron Angle speaks about sharia, Bill Clinton’s criticism and Harry Reid’s campaign

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle took a few minutes after an event today to talk to the press.

Here's what she had to say:

* On what evidence she had to assert that Islamic religious law, or “sharia,” had taken hold of Dearborn, Mich., and Frankford, Texas:

"All I had was just some articles that I read, there were some things that were happening, that indicated that there might be some things like that going on," Angle said.

* On what remedy she would propose if sharia law were taking hold:

"Well, I'm not prepared to go into hypotheticals with you," Angle said. "Certainly, it's not a widespread problem."

* On former President Bill Clinton's calling her a "disaster for America":

"I don't know how to respond to an ex-president," Angle said. "The people of Nevada think I'm a credible candidate."

* On how Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is running his campaign:

"The best I can give you is that the message has certainly changed from hope and change to fear and smear," Angle said.
