Durbin Statement On Retirement Announcement Of Senator Harry Reid
WASHINGTON—U.S. Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) released the following statement regarding the announcement that U.S. Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) will not seek reelection in 2016:
Harry Reid is one of the ablest leaders of the Senate Democratic caucus in modern history—he has served our country and the people of Nevada with a tenacity and passion rarely seen. The former boxer from Searchlight never forgot his roots and never went down without a fight. He and Landra have been dear friends for more than 30 years, and it has been an honor to be part of his leadership team for the past decade. The Senate will miss his leadership and I will miss his friendship, but with the 114th congress only just underway, Leader Reid and Senate Democrats have a lot of work to do on behalf of working families in this country. I will be by his side every day in that fight.
