LAS VEGAS (AP) - Harry Reid is using talk radio host Rush Limbaugh in his latest attempt to raise money for his 2010 re-election campaign.
In a solicitation e-mail sent to supporters Wednesday, the Senate majority leader says the "Limbaugh-led Republican party" is trying to "take me out."
The Nevada senator says he's not going to back down from a party that "takes its cues from right-wing talk radio."
Reid is the latest Democrat to try to win support by casting the often-polarizing Limbaugh as Republicans' de facto figurehead. White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel last month branded Limbaugh "the voice and intellectual force and energy" driving the GOP.
