Fox News alert -- -- in Nevada.
Sharon angles campaign now confirming to Fox News that it is candidate -- who was heard on an audiotape.
That is turned up lasting.
The GOP she's the Republican senate candidate who's looking to unseat Harry Reid.
She -- comments during a closed door meeting.
With a third candidate who's in this race the Tea Party candidate you know she's got the Tea Party backing it technically this other guy.
-- name's Scott Ashton who is trying to unseat Reid is well.
Angle met with him and is heard on the tape.
Encouraging him to drop out of the race telling quote I believe you can do some real harm not to Harry Reid but -- -- I'm not sure you can win and I'm not sure I can -- if you're hurting my chances and that's the part that scares me.
The radio talk show host and he's my guest now.
So now depends on we will consult when you ask what this tape means for Sharon angle and her you know very tight race against Harry Reid right now it is anybody's ball game out there Nevada.
It is not however Ashton -- me.
He's not gonna win so she goes in to try to persuade him to drop out of the race and says.
Not only what we put in that full screen quote right there but says the following about the Republican Party.
The Republicans are we have it okay no not that's not the one about the meant the other one pulled on him they -- with me yours is again and get it.
-- the Republicans have lost their standards they've lost their principles.
Really that's why the machine in the Republican Party.
Is fighting against needs she goes on and on about the Republican Party and very unflattering way -- and now that helps or hurts -- in this race.
-- and -- -- -- I waited to see what the actual transcript -- before calling us this morning and I agree with Howard -- over the Washington Post.
It's at worst mildly embarrassing but I actually think Sharon angle walks away from this with increased credentials among the people of the independent persuasion.
We're looking for people to go back to Washington DC and shake things up.
She is siding with approval Tom Coburn and -- -- admit she is standing with Ken Buck in Colorado.
In Joseph Miller in Alaska and Rand Paul in Kentucky.
And most importantly even though she is surreptitiously and I suspect illegally taped by this third party guy -- who comes off looking very very bad.
She is authentic as to what you said she's been before she got a lot of -- party.
Yeah I think I think at the end of the day the people were voting in Nevada were looking to get rid of Harry Reid.
And to overturn the governing majority in the United States senate we'll be pleased that they have a tough talking very authentic Sharon angle on the ballot and I think it hurts -- So called Tea Party can.
She talked about why she ran as a Republican to this guy -- and saying look I'm the only difference in the two buses I realized.
That in order to win you gotta get on the ticket as it either Republican or Democrat so I did that as a Republican she but she talks about just like the Republican Party she thinks the fighting against her.
As she says they've never really got along with lower taxes and less government which is what she stands for but.
Let -- take -- issue with your characterization of the -- thank you.
Because I think you put it most flattering light possible this is the part.
That may cause trouble for her she's talking about what she can give Ashton to get him to get out of the race this is where candidates go wrong nothing wrong with saying he -- -- -- Right that's fine.
But you can't offer you know something about you.
In an exchange for doing it so here's what she says she says.
First before she gets that she says that's really all I can offer you ration whatever juice I have you'll have as well and she says that's you -- -- see the next.
I have juice with him I go to Washington DC and want to see Jim -- he's right there for me.
I want to see Tom Coburn he's right there for me I want to see Mitch McConnell he's there.
So she's basically I'm not saying that this is a potential crime I'm just saying that it just sounds like she's awfully establishment for the candidate who's supposed to be in -- What the people that she sites there in the first two -- grant disagreeable -- with the interpretation because demand in Coburn.
Are the voice of the popular uprising.
In the country right now they're the ones who want to slash spending and put the country -- sound fiscal basis.
So when she says to wait so called Tea Party person and Ashton really does not represent the Tea Party -- -- -- Sharon angle as -- the Las Vegas Sun journal yesterday.
That I will go and work with demand and -- for your issues I don't think it's going to be read like -- access offer as some of the left is done.
And that takes me to what the left has been doing they're trying to use these diversion tactic not just -- Nevada but in California with the reverse all red torpedo which it Jerry Brown -- ships.
And they're trying to get voters off of what matters most -- them which is fear of where the country is headed and anger over broken promises by Obama.
And so when Sharon angle goes into a meeting to get out of the race so I can beat Harry Reid so I can go back there and work with -- -- and Coburn I think she's wearing it every bell and -- Is she saying I can offer you juice I have with.
With McConnell and admit this guy pushing running and asked did.
He's the owner -- any asphalt paving company why does at all and when he loses this race need -- As an asphalt company -- -- company with.
If I believe for a moment that was what was she was -- that I would be joining any critic of Sharon angle but it's not when she says Jews I really believe -- and she says when you wanna come back and hammer.
On spending when you want to come back and hammer.
On the growth of government I will take you personally and to -- Jim -- and Tom Coburn.
And Mitch McConnell who will hammer on those issues but for the media especially the liberal media this morning was all over this.
It's like someone complaining to their bank.
That they have been unjustly denied -- deposit an important issue to them like the people right now are concerned about money and spending.
And the media saying take a toaster take this story over here go on and worry about whether or not Jews -- I don't think it's working it's not working in California I don't think it's gonna work in Connecticut.
As Carl was just reporting I don't think it's gonna work anywhere because people are so desperately concerned.
That the country get back on fiscal sound ground and I think Sharon angle if you read this state.
Listen to what she was absolutely defrauded by this guy but she did not -- betray her principles.
It's online -- apparently Ashton is the one who leaked it the media after -- all right you thank you so much for your insights.
