10 Biggest Election Wins

1. Harry Reid (D-NV) Beats Sharron Angle (R)

Nevada is ground zero of the country’s foreclosure crisis. One of every 25 homes in Las Vegas is underwater. Unemployment hovers above 14 percent. All of which makes it a tough time to be an incumbent, let alone Senate majority leader, dedicated to bringing home the bacon. Plus, for a state already suffering from Reid fatigue, Harry’s son, Rory, was on the ballot, angling for governor. Sharron Angle, running with a crusader’s faith and Annie Oakley’s gusto, hoovered in nearly as much cash as the mighty Reid. With labor and gambling big wheels on his side, Reid outlasted his chippy opponent, showing that the former boxer has some fight in him yet. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong)
