(LAS VEGAS) -- It appears a game of cat and mouse is unfolding between Republican Senate hopeful Sharron Angle and the Nevada Press Corps.
Angle, who is locked in a fierce political battle with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, allegedly used a decoy as she exited a campaign event, the Las Vegas Sun reported Monday. After arriving, Angle blew by reporters on her way into the event, according to media reports.
Angle’s exit, however, is where the controversy lies.
The Nevada Democratic Party, which has set up a website to track Angle’s whereabouts, described it this way: “[An Angle staffer] shouted out to reporters that they would take their candidate out the front to two vehicles waiting to whisk her back to the bunker. Meanwhile, Sharron Angle was sneaking out another exit.”
The Angle campaign told ABC News that Angle was simply pressed for time: “It was a private meeting with Microsoft, which we were running late for, then we had to hit the road for a meet-and-greet in Lake Tahoe, which we were also late for.”
