The contest is close for Nevada’s senate seat, a race that pits Majority Leader Harry Reid against Tea Party challenger Sharon Angle.
Many voters blame Reid for Nevada’s unemployment and housing problems. Angle, meanwhile, is campaigning on an anti-immigration platform.
Some of her more colorful gaffes include describing a room full of Hispanic college students as Asian. She also described herself as the first Asian lawmaker in Nevada’s state legislature.
The anti-abortion candidate also said rape and incest victims should make lemonade out of a lemon situation.
Despite her seeming missteps, Angle has given Reid a pounding in polls in the lead up to next week’s vote.
