Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has some heavyweights in his corner this election. Politico noted some of the biggest stars in mixed martial arts cage-fighting have come out in support of the Nevada Senator. Randy Couture, Frank Mir, Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell all have Reid’s back. Boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao is scheduled to appear alongside Reid on the campaign trail tomorrow in Las Vegas.
Perhaps, it's their fighting roots that bring them all together. Reid used to box as middleweight back in the day. He needs to show that spirit a bit more if he intends to win — right now, he’s trailing Tea Party candidate Sharron Angle in the polls.
