A secret audio tape is shaking up a close Senate race in Nevada, where House Majority Leader Harry Reid is running against Sharron Angle.
On a recording made by third party Tea Party candidate Scott Ashjian, Angle is on tape trying to persuade Ashjian to drop out of the race and throw his support behind her.
While Ashjian is no direct competition for Angle, according to the latest CNN polling, Ashjian is getting about 5 percent of the vote - enough to steal away votes from Sharron Angle and give Harry Reid just enough of a margin for a win.
But there are no signs Ashjian is heeding Angle‚Äôs plea. He told "American Morning" that ‚ÄúI understand the concern from her end. It really isn't my fault that the Republicans put up a candidate that was weak.‚ÄĚ
In fact, Asjian said, ‚ÄúI don't see a difference between the Republican and the Democrat. I think politics in general is corrupt. I think both parties are corrupt.‚ÄĚ
