    Sun columnist Jon Ralston is reporting that the Tea Party has qualified as a third party in Nevada and will have a candidate in the Senate race to battle for the seat held by Majority Leader Harry Reid.

    The party has filed a Certificate of Existence but needs to get 1 percent of the electorate to vote for its candidate in November to permanently qualify, according to the report.

    Ralston reported that Jon Ashjian will be the Tea Party's U.S. Senate candidate on the November ballot. Ashjian still must declare his candidacy.

    There are six other third-party candidates going through the verification process to appear on the ballot as U.S. Senate candidates — one Reform Party hopeful and five as independents, Ralston reported.

    Reid's Republican challengers currently include former state Sen. Sue Lowden, former UNLV basketball star Danny Tarkanian and former state Assemblywoman Sharron Angle.

    The news also comes two days after first-term Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki said

    :lol: Wow. Perhaps the #2 person I want to see go most. And the Republicans want to fuck it up by running a third party candidate.

    The 3rd Party needs to get out of the way. Reform the GOP, don't split the Vote.

    Reid is sighing a big sigh of relief. Damn it that man needs replaced, what do those fools think they are doing?
