FDR's Grandson Prepares to Bash Sharron Angle

LAS VEGAS -- Democrats are marching out the grandson of Franklin D. Roosevelt in their latest attack on Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle.

James Roosevelt is scheduled to blast Angle's social security plan Friday during a press event that will also feature leaders of two senior groups. Roosevelt's grandfather signed social security into law 75 years ago.

Angle has said she wants to model Chile and privatize the nation's social security system.

Angle is challenging Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
