Why Doesn’t Harry Reid’s Son Want to Remind Voters of His Last Name?

Rory Reid, running for governor of Nevada, clearly doesn’t want voters to confuse him with his father — soon-to-be ex Senator Harry Reid — on election day. Rory’s people must figure it’s best just to drop the “Reid” altogether.

Find Rory’s last name anywhere in his latest campaign ad and win a prize — this is the political advertising equivalent of checking into a hotel under the name “Smith”:

Bonus challenge: Try and find Rory’s last name anywhere on his campaign website homepage — or even on his “Meet Rory” page.

Seems like if your father was the increasingly unpopular Majority Leader of the US Senate that is spending the country into oblivion, you might want to mention that at least in your bio, doesn’t it? Okay, maybe not.

I haven’t seen a guy go this far out of his way not to mention his last name since Skippy Hitler ran for mayor of Jerusalem in the 1950’s.
