Reid and Angle Spar Over Aid for Foreigners

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Republican Sharron Angle continues to paint Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid as a friend of illegal immigrants in a new campaign ad flush with images of suspicious, dark-skinned men.

The TV spot repeats claims that Reid supports special tax breaks and tuition rates for illegal immigrants and asks, "What does Harry Reid have against you?"

Reid's campaign calls the ad "incendiary," but the Nevada Democrat released his own TV spot that calls Angle "a foreign worker's best friend."

Reid's campaign says its ad is accurate because Angle opposed a stimulus bill that closed some tax breaks for companies operating overseas. Angle's camp calls the spot "hypocritical."

Illegal immigration can be a sore subject in Nevada. The state leads the nation in both illegal and unemployed workers.
