    LAS VEGAS (AP) - A county board voted unanimously Tuesday to rename busy McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas after former U.S. Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada. The all-Democratic Clark County Commission approved a measure directing the county’s airport staff to file a change with the Federal Aviation Administration renaming the facility Harry Reid International Airport. The county commission oversees the airport and is the final authority on a name change. There have been longstanding calls to rename the airport. Its current namesake, former Nevada Sen. Patrick McCarran, served as one of Nevada’s two U.S. senators from 1933 until his...

    Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) criticized Sen. Bernie Sanders's (I-Vt.) signature "Medicare for All" health care plan ahead of Wednesday night's Democratic presidential primary debate in Las Vegas. While Reid said during an interview with ABC News's Rick Klein that he thinks "the world of Bernie Sanders," he called the progressive senator's health care plan "impractical." "There’s not a chance in hell it would pass," Reid said in the podcast interview. Reid has spoken out about Medicare for All in the past, telling Vice last year he didn't think the plan could pass and that Democrats should instead...

    **SNIP** Trump made his money in the private sector. That’s none of my business. Trump took huge tax deductions. Who cares? They were legal. If they weren’t legal, how come the IRS never had him prosecuted? But if politicians get rich while in office, that’s something we all should investigate. How did Harry Reid retire as one of the richest senators on a salary of $175,000 - or less - per year? Can anyone explain how anyone gets rich on $175,000 per year, after taxes, after kids in college, after keeping homes in both Nevada and D.C.? I can’t make...

    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A Utah county prosecutor said Wednesday he is investigating U.S. Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada in connection with a pay-to-play scheme involving two former Utah attorneys general. Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings, a Republican, said in a statement that he's looking into allegations related to the Democratic senator. Rawlings declined to disclose the allegations and only said the claims are based on information from witnesses in the attorneys general case. Reid, who hasn't been charged, fired back at Rawlings in a statement from his spokeswoman Kristen Orthman. She said Rawlings is using "Sen. Reid's name...

The Nevada Democrat declined to explicitly endorse the former secretary of during an interview with Nevada public radio station KNPR on Monday, though Reid strongly suggested that he would soon. Clinton is visiting House and Senate Democrats on Tuesday in what’s likely to be a circus-like atmosphere on Capitol Hill.

    WASHINGTON — Senator Harry Reid, the tough tactician who has led Senate Democrats since 2005, will not seek re-election next year, bringing an end to a three-decade congressional career that culminated with his push of President Obama’s ambitious agenda against fierce Republican resistance. 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. He said his decision was not attributable either to the accident or to his demotion to minority leader after Democrats lost the majority in November’s...

    WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday the war in Iraq is "lost," triggering an angry backlash by Republicans, who said the top Democrat had turned his back on the troops. The bleak assessment - the most pointed yet from Reid - came as the House voted 215-199 to uphold legislation ordering troops out of Iraq next year. "I believe myself that the secretary of state, secretary of defense and - you have to make your own decisions as to what the president knows - (know) this war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything as...

    Harry Reid is GOP’s top boogeyman in race for SenateBy DAVID CATANESE | 10/17/12 12:10 AM EDT Imagine a scenario in which Democrats hold the U.S. Senate and Harry Reid lacks the votes to remain majority leader. As ludicrous as it sounds, listen to a handful of Democratic Senate candidates and you might begin to believe it. At least four Democratic hopefuls have expressed varying degrees of reservation about supporting the senior senator from Nevada to head their caucus next year. It’s a leading indicator of how much of a lightning rod Reid has become in the scramble for the...

    House Republicans are finishing work on a new proposal to resolve the standoff over the debt ceiling. The proposal, set to be finished and crafted into the form of a bill by Sunday, will be in two parts. The first will combine a short-term increase in the debt ceiling with spending cuts. The second will lay the groundwork for a longer-term increase in the debt ceiling coupled with far-reaching deficit reduction. "Senator Reid said on Friday that he is going to wait for us to move," says a well-informed GOP House aide. "So we'll move." Another well-informed aide confirmed the...
