Three Las Vegas Strip casino executives are among a group of Republicans backing Senate Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid in his bid for a fifth term.

Harrah's Entertainment public policy chief Marybel Batjer (BATCH'-er) is on a list of 25 Republican supporters released by Reid's campaign on Wednesday.

MGM Resorts International marketing executive Bill Hornbuckle and senior spokesman Alan Feldman are also named.

Reid is in a tight race with Republican Sharron Angle.

He's touting a list of more than 100 Republican supporters as part of an ongoing campaign to label Angle as "too extreme."

Angle's campaign says many more Republicans want to show Reid the door.

Angle blames Reid for troubles in Nevada's tourism-based economy.

Reid blames GOP policy for Nevada's economic woes.
