United States Senate election in Nevada, 2010
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will seek a fifth term. In 2004, he was reelected with 61% of the vote. That year, Republicans did not put up a formidable challenger. Potential Republican candidates include former Governor Kenny Guinn, Representatives Jon Porter and Dean Heller, or 2004 candidate Richard Ziser. Guinn might be the strongest challenger to Reid but will be 74 in 2010, three years Reid's senior. Porter is the more likely to run as he has been interested since 2004 and been planning a run.
Reid may be the least popular incumbent in the 2010 cycle. Since becoming Minority Leader (in 2004), his approval ratings have dropped into the under 50 territory. A November 2007 poll showed Reid's approval at 39%, with 49% disapproving. <ref>KREN.com (story no longer available)</ref>
