Did boxer Manny Pacquiao make Nevada Senator Harry Reid a pound-for-pound political champion?
Pacquiao is claiming sole credit for Reid’s Senate victory over Tea Party candidate Sharron Angle in Tuesday’s election. Pacquiao points out that Reid was “behind 4% in the polls before I got out there” and started campaigning for him.
Pacquiao is also crediting himself for helping Jerry Brown get elected as governor of California. Meanwhile, legendary trainer Freddie Roach is angry that Pacquiao took time off training before next week’s fight against Antonio Margarito in Dallas.
