Harry Reid

  1. The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza gives an overview of Nevada's unique situation this campaign cycle: Even in a state with the nation's highest unemployment, the Democratic Party machine that drove Barack Obama to victory in 2008 and Harry Reid to a win in 2010 along with a growing Latino population has many pollsters predicting Nevada staying blue this year (albeit with a smaller margin).

    It’s also worth noting that Nevada, with one exception, has correctly predicted every presidential election since 1912, making one of the premier bellwether states. For a closer look at Nevada’s electoral history, click here.

  2. Andrew Kaczynski, a reporter for Buzzfeed Politics, tweeted this .gif image of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s comment on Republican filibusters: Poppycock.
Reid is becoming a trend-setter - last month, his use of Nationals phenom Bryce Harper’s quote, “That’s a clown question, bro" went viral.
