Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh (Ind.) took a shot at Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle (R) during a cable news interview Wednesday.

At the end of his spot with NBC's Andrea Mitchell, Bayh went off script.

"One last thing Andrea, after watching your report about the Nevada Senate race, will you be my friend?" he asked.

Bayh referred to an interview between Fox News's Carl Cameron and Angle, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's (D-Nev.) opponent. Angle said that her campaign wants the press to "be our friend" and to "ask the questions we want to answer so that they report the news the way we want it to be reported."

Mitchell laughed and said, "I will be your friend senator."

"I couldn't resist," Bayh shot back.

"Only easy questions from now on senator, that's my M.O.," Mitchell added.
