Nev. Senate: Lowden reflects on campaign missteps

This was supposed to be coronation day for Sue Lowden, collecting her first crown since winning the Miss New Jersey beauty pageant in 1973. As a former state senator and state Republican Party chairwoman, Lowden entered the GOP primary for the right to take on Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) as a prohibitive favorite. Less than four months ago Lowden had a lead of 18 percentage points over her next closest competitor, businessman Danny Tarkanian, and almost 40 points ahead of former state legislator Sharron Angle. She was even above the magic 50-percent threshold in a head-to-head match-up against Reid, defeating him by 13 percentage points.
