BREAKING: Senate Democratic Leader HARRY REID announces retirement

HarryReidThis day has been a long time coming, and it couldn’t come soon enough, but Harry Reid (D-Nv) has finally announced his retirement that will be effective at the end of his current term.

From Fox News:

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid announced Friday he will retire from the Senate at the end of his term.

The longtime Nevada Democrat announced the decision in a YouTube video message.

Appearing with bruises on his face from a recent at-home exercising accident, Reid said the injury has caused him and his family to have a “little down-time,” giving him time to think.

“We’ve got to be more concerned about the country, the Senate, the state of Nevada than us. And as a result of that, I’m not going to run for reelection,” the senator said in the video.

Reid added: “My friend, Senator McConnell, don’t be too elated. I’m going to be here for twenty-two months.”
