Scott Ashjian was suspect and his true intentions were in question from the minute he claimed to be a Tea Party Member because the people who organized the Tea party Locally and Nationally knew nothing of this guy.
Because I am very familiar with politics and the tricks of the trade my first thought was he is a Progressive Liberal in Conservative clothing setting out to dilute the votes to give Reid a better chance to be re-elected.
It is not going to work but it won't stop others from trying the same or similar tactics.

Tea Party Express says Ashjian has no backing from movement
The Tea Party Express plans today to launch an ad denouncing Scott Ashjian for running his U.S. Senate campaign under the Tea Party of Nevada banner without backing from local and national members of the movement, a person familiar with the ad said.
The move comes as Ashjian faces political and personal legal troubles. State officials on Wednesday revoked his contractor's license after he failed to respond to the Nevada State Contractors Board and skipped an 8:30 a.m. hearing regarding defaulted business payments. Earlier this week, an independent candidate and Tea Party backer filed a lawsuit to get Ashjian's name removed from the ballot.
"This challenge is nothing more than another attempt to silence me -- to bully me -- out of a race I am committed to winning," Ashjian said Wednesday in an e-mail response to the lawsuit
