NV Sen: Angle Was Voted Worst Legislator When She Served in State Assembly

Las Vegas Review Journal:

Angle twice was chosen the worst Assembly member in polls conducted by the Las Vegas Review-Journal after the legislative sessions. She was named the second-worst and the third-worst member in her other sessions.

Legislators, lobbyists and press members participated in the polls. The same number of Republican legislators as Democrats were given poll forms. The polls were anonymous…

[Former] Assembly Speaker Richard Perkins, D-Henderson, said Angle’s constituents lost because her political views were too extreme for the mainstream and she would not work with others to pass bills.

Based on her legislative performance, he predicts Nevadans will be the real losers if they elect her to the U.S. Senate. Perkins backs incumbent Sen. Harry Reid, a Democrat.

“She had every opportunity to be part of an effective group,” Perkins said. “But her views were too radical. If she is elected to the U.S. Senate, the state will go from No. 1 to No. 100 in power and stature. She would be a disaster for Nevada. No one in the Senate is going to listen to Sharron Angle.”
