Reid Faces Millionaire Opponent

Sue Lowden is a favorite among those who want to give Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid a run for his money in the 2010 campaign, and she certainly has the funds to back it up. Lowden's financial-disclosure report filed with the Senate Office of Public Records shows she owns shared valued at more than $50 million in Archon Corp., a Las Vegas investment and gaming company. That makes her capable of financially backing her own campaign, though she says she does not want to dip into personal funds. Despite the many millionaires up against Reid, Lowden's holdings will put her at the top, reports The Associated Press. Lowden has already resigned as chairwoman of the Nevada Republican Party in preparation for the race.
