From the obituary section of the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

Charlotte M. Tidwell McCourt, 84, of Pahrump, passed away July 8, 2010, after a long illness. She was born Dec. 25, 1925, in Wellington, Utah, and was a 40-year resident of Nevada. Charlotte held a zest for life and loved serving her family of five children; 20 grandchildren; and 65 great-grandchildren. She had been the wife of Patrick L. McCourt for 67 happy years. Active in her community, she assisted in many political figures’ campaign efforts. As an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Charlotte served as a leader in the Relief Society for over 20 years. She and her beloved husband also served a full-time mission in the Cabanatuan Mission in the Phillipines. Charlotte is survived by her husband, Patrick; children, Pat and Nellie McCourt, Dan and Lanny Shea, Bill and Marsha Sortor, David and Sherry d’Hulst, and Tom and Ann McMullin; and many grandchildren. A memorial service was held Saturday, July 10, at the LDS Chapel, 921 E. Wilson, in Pahrump. We believe that Mom would say she was mortified to have taken a large role in the election of Harry Reid to U.S. Congress. Let the record show Charlotte was displeased with his work. Please, in lieu of flowers, vote for another more worthy candidate.

Hopefully Nevadans can help send Harry Reid packing in the memory of Charlotte McCourt.

    I donated to Sharron Angle last night. My very 1st political contribution I have ever made in my 33+ years of voting. Whether it helps her or not, I care not, it sure made me feel better !

    Doing ANYTHING to unseat Harry Reid just feels right, doesn't it?

    As the original Great One, Jackie Gleason, used to say, "How Sweet It Is !!!". I hit Marco Rubio, JD Hayworth & Joe Miller vs Murkowski (AK) as well. Drudge had great news today for us and the dismal outlook for them.
