Sharron Angle won the Republican primary for the Senate seat held by Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid. She has strong Tea Party backing.

In October 2009, she stated her support for a federal law to define marriage as between a man and a woman. But she would also like to intrude into private family life even deeper, saying that it’s wrong for both parents to hold jobs.

Among her other controversial positions, she favors making alcohol illegal. And yes, Las Vegas is the largest city in the state she wants to represent.

She has spoken out against fluoride as a communist plot.

While in the Nevada legislature, she sponsored legislation to require doctors to inform women that abortion causes breast cancer.

Her ideas for drug rehab for prisoners is based on ideas linked to the Church of Scientology.

How did Angle win? She beat Sue Lowden, who proposed people pay for doctors’ visits with a chicken.
