Earlier this morning, I had an exclusive interview with Sue Lowden, a Republican legislator from Nevada who wants a chance to run against Harry Reid in the 2010 midterms. Sue has an impressive resume, having been an owner of a small business, a political activist, and an impressive officeholder. She wants to bring Nevada back to its independent-conservative roots, which she says Harry Reid has long forgotten in his years in the Senate. Instead of going on the attack, though, Sue explains that she wants to focus on her political accomplishments and philosophy to allow Nevadans to become acquainted with her — as they increasingly grow disenchanted with Reid:
Sue makes an impressive case, although she does have to win a Republican primary first, against Danny Tarkanian, among others. As long as the Republicans remain focused on Reid, we should see a good candidate emerge from that process made stronger by the initial challenge. Be sure to check Sue’s website over the next couple of weeks while she expands her policy views and gets girded for the fight.
By the way, be sure to get all the way through to the end of the interview to hear why she may be uniquely qualified to knock out the Senate Majority Leader.
