LAS VEGAS - In her quest to topple U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Republican challenger Sharron Angle introduced U.S. Sen. John McCain (Arizona-R) to a crowd of Las Vegas supporters at the Orleans Friday night. McCain took the stage and delivered a ringing endorsement for Angle.
"I look forward to standing side by side with Sharron Angle," Sen. McCain said. "I look forward to fighting with her against this out of control spending, this mortgaging of our children's futures, this generational theft that has taken place."
With four days left until the midterm election, McCain's appearance may woo moderate conservatives who are on the fence about voting for Angle.
"Sharron understands that America can come back from this," McCain said. "We can change. We can bring about physical discipline. We can encourage small and large businesses. We can grow again."
McCain and Angle bashed Reid and President Obama. They criticized the Democrats' handling of the economy and the passage of health care reform which Republicans call "Obamacare". The 2008 GOP presidential nominee says a vote for Angle is a vote for the Republicans to regain a majority in the Senate.
"I'm here tonight, because this election will change America. The world is watching this election. My friends, the 51st vote to give the Republicans the majority in the U.S. Senate will come from right here in the State of Nevada," McCain said.
A few hundred people attended the rally.
