RENO, Nev. (AP) - Northern Nevada's largest newspaper has endorsed Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's re-election
The Reno Gazette-Journal endorsed Reid on Sunday over tea-party backed Republican Sharron Angle.
In its endorsement, the newspaper says Reid is far from perfect but that he's an effective advocate for Nevada's interests.
In contrast, the newspaper said Angle had few accomplishments during her eight years in the Nevada Legislature.
Recent polls show Angle and Reid in a dead-heat race.
Early voting began Saturday.
