Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., is enough trouble as it is — with a race for re-election coming up next year, his numbers are in the toilet. The Republican threat is enough to make him uncomfortable, but he’s never been liberals’ favorite guy, either, and now they’re taking out ads to show it.
The Progressive Change Campaign Committee is out with a new ad that encourages Reid to push for a public option in the Senate, and that seems to encourage votes against him if he can’t get it done. Spots like this will sometimes only be aired on national cable or in Washington, D.C., a sign that they’re more about influencing opinion makers than anything else, but in this case the PCCC is hitting Reid quite literally where he lives, in Nevada.
As ABC News’ Teddy Davis notes, Reid and PCCC already have a less-than-cordial relationship, after the group joined Rep. Alan Grayson to deliver a petition with 90,000 signatures to the majority leader, asking him to punish Democrats who support a Republican filibuster of healthcare reform legislation.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
On March 21, 2010, the House voted to approve a healthcare bill intended to overhaul the system and guarantee Americans access to health insurance. The vote was 219 to 213. Problem solved? Hardly.
