Bennett, Romney, Reids make campaign headlines

It's not often you have two LDS politicians appearing on the front page of the New York Times in one day. It happened recently, when the Times featured the shaky future of U.S. Sen. Bob Bennett, R-Utah, and a photo of a smiling President Obama holding Mitt Romney's latest tome. The juxtaposition is symbolic of the flurry of news surrounding LDS politicos.

This week Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid launched his campaign in his hometown of Searchlight, Nev. where he didn't spare a few jabs at Sarah Palin. Reid faces a tough election CBS News reported:

"Reid appears to have an uphill battle ahead of him as he campaigns for a fifth term in office. A new Rasmussen poll shows all three of the top Republican contenders beating Reid in head-to-head match ups. Former Republican Chairman Sue Lowden beats Reid 54 percent to 39 percent, former Assemblywoman Sharron Angle leads Reid 51 percent to 40 percent, and businessman Danny Tarkanian beats Reid 49 percent to 42 percent. Only 23 percent of Nevada voters polled said they have a very favorable opinion of Reid while 53 percent said they view him very unfavorably."
