Rory Reid (D) Drops Last Name in Campaign Ad

The speculation is that Rory Reid (D) dropped the last name in his ad an campaign signs to distance himself from his father, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D). How toxic do you have to be politically for your son to drop the last name you gave him hoping that people do not realize you are related...

"Reid, the son of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), doesn't say his name at any point during the ad, but it prominently features his campaign logo, "Rory 2010."

Observers noticed that throughout the gubernatorial primary, Rory Reid seemed to distance himself from his father, who faced high disapproval ratings from voters.

It looks like, for now, Rory Reid is staying with that strategy, although Harry Reid's numbers have been steadily improving and strategists believe Sharron Angle's winning the Republican Senate nomination will help return Sen. Reid to Washington.

Rory Reid's website also neglects to mention his last name on its main banner, which reads "Rory 2010."
