National Democrats bring multi-million dollar “Rescue Harry” campaign to NV; Republicans put money into GOTV

On the heels of the stunning fundraising success of GOP Senate nominee Sharron Angle -- The $14 Million Woman -- the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has come in with a gigantic TV buy over the next fortnight(first reported by Aaron Blake of The Washington Post) to try to help embattled Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. One GOP source who has checked gave me this: $1.9 million in Las Vegas, $600,000 in Reno. A Democratic source estimated the buy at slightly less -- $2 million or so statewide -- but still formidable.

I also understand that the National Republican Senatorial Committee has infused $600,000 into the state GOP for get-out-the-vote efforts. Now they have to hope someone here knows how to spend the money.

The most intense race in state history is about to get more intense.
