TheHill looks at Danny
“Shark, Jr. hopes to take ’10 bite out of Sen. Reid”
By Alexander Bolton – 09/10/09 06:05 AM ET
Danny Tarkanian knows that defeating a political icon like Sen. Harry Reid is no slam-dunk. So he’s enlisting his own “Dream Team” to the cause.
Former NBA all-star forward Larry Johnson, who played for Tarkanian’s father nearly two decades ago at UNLV, has offered to raise money.
The comments after this article are telling. What is Danny’s platform? We know he’s anti-Reid, we know he has basketball contacts who are great fun (and, more importantly, great potential fundraisers) and we know Danny’s a wholesome-looking family man. See his website. Republicans are giving Danny a look. Now he needs to spell out his political platform while he still has our attention. Danny’s “questions to Senator Reid” during the August recess were excellent. See Danny’s Townhall.com post for details. A promising, small-government Republican lurks in these questions. We are ready for further details now, though, and we want them in writing.
