The Nevada state senator further stated that Harry Reid was the only candidate who worked for his endorsement. In his statements on Sharron Angle, Bill Raggio stated that he has not forgotten the negative behavior of Sharron Angle, two years back when she challenged him in a primary and lost, he also cannot except her extreme and radical viewpoints.
