With the polls virtually tied in Nevada, GOP Senate hopeful Sharron Angle is set to pick up a major GOP endorsement on Friday. As the National Review's Elizabeth Crum first reported, Arizona Sen. John McCain will campaign with Angle at a rally in Las Vegas on Friday night.
The '08 GOP presidential candidate is perhaps the biggest party figure to date to appear with Angle. Over the summer, Angle shared a stage with Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele, though that was at a Nevada state GOP event and not a specific Angle rally. Though Angle has picked up the endorsements of GOP notables, including McCain's '08 running mate Sarah Palin, the Nevada GOP hopeful hasn't actually campaigned with many national Republicans. That's in spite of the fact that party is betting millions to help her defeat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
