Las Vegas, Nevada (CNN) – Elusive Republican Senate Candidate Sharron Angle accused Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's campaign of running a "fear and smear" campaign in the face of her surging candidacy, in a rare interview Wednesday.

    It's appropriate that you quoted that line from Sharron Angle since her contribution to the debate w/Sen. Reid was mostly platitudes and uninformed remarks about policy. Nevada has the highest number of umemployed workers and underwater mortgages in the US. One of its senators, Sen. Ensign, is crippled by scandal. Electing Ms. Engle will effectively eliminate any individual in a position to stand for Nevada. Her total lack of understanding of how the government works is astonishing. No matter how angry Nevadans are, they should not go one step further, and eliminate the one person in a position to alleviate the terrible economic situation they are in. Members of the Senate vote on war and peace. I shudder to think Ms. Angle could be casting one of those votes.

    My husband and myself as well as many Nevadans from outside Las Vegas will vote "none of the above". We want Harry Reid out but will never vote for Sharon Angle! What were the Republicans thinking to put her as their candidate?
