And it’s still early. May you reach even higher peaks today.
He wouldn't have won anyway....Hitlery hates him because in 2008 Hairy Reed endorsed Obama.
“I proposed we help him out by launching some really big rocks in his direction.”
TEA folk we have to launch them as RINOs have no idea what stones are.
From Jon Ralston
“DSCC: “There is a talented pool of Nevada Democrats who are ready to step up to the plate...” RalstonFact: Um, no.”
Several of the old-timers tend to flee when they lose the majority or are about to.
Many of them have jobs-in-waiting with the corporations they have been funding during their political tenure.
Mitch McConnell will need to look for a new boss.
Good riddance to a Senate pestilence.
Gee wiz, i hope he is not in constant pain as the result of his accident? I hope his conscience doesn’t nag him day and night either.
Not sure...but, he definitely got "the message".
Well, Harry, It wiuld have been better for your soul and our country if you’d been able to have such an accident years ago.
May your time off be spent contemplating the repercussions of your behavior.
The tampering with DHS did him in.....................
Hand caught in the cookie jar.
Mr. Reid, 75, who suffered serious eye and facial injuries in a Jan. 1 exercise accident at his Las Vegas home, said he had been contemplating retiring from the Senate for months.
I heard he walked into a door knob.
I agree, Reid is more dangerous than that female AG or anyone else that the RATs may run. 2014 showed what can happen to Democrats in NV when Harry doesn’t turn on his electoral machine. Democrats got trounced, with GOP candidates winning races that they had no business winning.
The seat is Sandoval’s for the taking now, and I think that he’ll take it now. Sandoval probably wanted to avoid a bruising battle, which is why he kept mum on his intentions, but with Reid out of the picture he knows that the Democrats won’t run very hard against him.
Sandoval can become a Senator for as long as he wishes if he runs next year, while if he stays as Governor he’ll be out of office and in the private sector in 2019 with no chance of ever becoming President (he’s “pro-choice” on abortion, and no “pro-choice” candidate has won even one GOP presidential primary or caucus, much less the nomination, since incumbent President Ford in 1976). So what’s Sandoval’s long-term aspiration, SCOTUS? (He’s a former federal judge.) Being elected to the Senate and becoming a force in the Senate Judiciary Committee would be his only possible road to SCOTUS (not that I would support him for SCOTUS given his views on abortion). I think that running for the Senate next year should be a no-brainer for Sandoval. And, given the proclivities of NV voters, I would prefer that he run and pick up the seat, despite his stance on abortion. since he’d be good on other issues and at least would vote against public funding of abortion (and maybe for a 20-week ban).
It would be good for LT Gov Mark Hutchison (who sounds like a conservative) to become the new Governor and be the incumbent in 2018.
Harry, I believe you are a POS and I would not go out of my way to save your life if I ever had such an opportunity.
You are a creep, a liar, and a thief. You should rot in prison and all of those you’ve wronged should be allowed “private time” with you in your cell.
I’d frankly like to see Adam Laxalt take his grandfather’s seat.
a. The Vegas Mafia FINALLY got to him, via his ‘treadmill.’ *SNORT*
b. Who will be the next small, petty, greedy little TROLL to take his place?
You’d LIKE to think there would be a silver lining to these things, but alas, usually not. :(
