RENO, Nev.—The Republican mayor of Reno says the U.S. Senate candidate chosen this week by the Nevada GOP to take on Democrat Harry Reid is an "ultra right-winger" whom he cannot support.
Mayor Bob Cashell says former state Assemblywoman Sharron Angle is "just too far to the right for me."
Angle, a tea party favorite, won Tuesday's primary with 40 percent of the vote and faces the Senate majority leader in the November general election.
Cashell plans to campaign for Reid. He told KRNV-TV in Reno on Friday that "our state will suffer and we would never get anything done" if she is elected.
