Sharron Angle meets DC conservatives, not Fox News

Sharron Angle gave the Washington press corps another brief glimpse of her campaign for U.S. Senate in Nevada Wednesday at and after the weekly conservative meeting held by Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform. The meeting was off the record (meaning all conversations inside are, too), but the fact that Angle was appearing there had been reported elsewhere. That drew in a number of reporters who got to see her work a crowd of true believers.

After the event, Angle stopped only for photos and chats with supporters -- one of whom warned her about a conservative journalist who wanted to nail her on some of the stories about her past career in politics. As she headed out of the building, a TV camera popped up in her view.

"Fox News is lying in wait for you," said one of Angle's four travelling aides.

"We've got to get going, don't we?" she said. She climbed into a waiting van while Fox News asked her one question: "How have your meetings been going in Washington?"

"Very good, and we're hitting the trail right now for another one."

Angle ducked out of view as she was asked a follow-up about "taking on the Reid juggernaut." Her van idled briefly, then moved on.
