    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had an unusual form of praise for New York's junior senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, this morning at the fundraiser Mayor Bloomberg hosted for him at his townhouse - referring to her as "the hottest member" as she sat just a few feet away, according to three sources. The comment prompted Gillibrand to turn red, according to the sources, and created a bit of stir among the small crowd there. "It was pretty shocking when he said it," said one source familiar with the remark and the reaction. A Reid spokesman confirmed it happened, but also noted...

Kirsten Gillibrand "the hottest member," in front of a crowd that included the blond mother of two. reported that the remark caused Gillibrand to blush and surprised those in the audience. Reid apparently was explaining that senators are known for "many things," but that Gillibrand has a reputation as a Capitol Hill hottie. ...

    While campaigning in Nevada Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told an audience of mostly Hispanic voters: 'I don't know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, okay. Do I need to say more?'" Like most politicians Harry Reid tends to be long-winded, belaboring a point until half his audience is asleep and the other half is silently cursing him. But on the subject of Hispanics and the Republican party Sen. Reid was cogent and concise. Hispanics, especially those living in Arizona, don't need to hear a long speech to convince them that they shouldn't belong to the...

    Energy Policy: Senate Democrats have shelved job-killing cap-and-trade legislation, at least for now. Neither the political nor the Earth's climate suggests it's a good time to try to fool Mother Nature or the American people. After a Thursday meeting with Senate Democrats, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has apparently dropped plans to pursue cap-and-trade before the August recess. He doesn't have the votes to overcome a GOP filibuster, and saving the earth from a phantom threat stands way below jobs on Americans' wish list. But watch out after November. "What he suggested is that we move forward on several bills...

    (July 16) -- According to the latest polls, embattled Nevada incumbent Democratic Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid is now leading Republican challenger Sharron Angle, 44 to 37 percent. In last month's poll, Angle was ahead three percentage points. Reid's seat has long looked vulnerable in this purple state, which has the country's highest unemployment rate -- 14 percent. The majority leader is the local face of the Obama administration, and even though Obama took Nevada in the 2008 presidential election, his popularity there has declined. For Republican's eyeing big wins in the mid-term elections, winning Reid's seat would be the...

    It's an open secret that Sharron Angle, the GOP's new nominee against Sen. Harry Reid (R-Nev.), is being encouraged to shake up her tiny, grassroots campaign. Republicans just can't afford to be too obvious about it -- a top National Republican Senate Committee staffer parachuting in to retool Angle's strategy would give the game away. So the first retooling came on Angle's website, which, pre-primary, was stuffed with policy positions rich with material for attack ads. On Wednesday, that site was gone, replaced with a new site designed, as Rachel Maddow's staff discovered, by The Prosper Group Corporation, which worked...

    Sharron Angle, following her come-from-behind Republican Primary win Tuesday, has bounced to an 11-point lead over Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada’s closely-watched U.S. Senate race. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Nevada, taken Wednesday night, shows Angle earning 50% support while Reid picks up 39% of the vote. Five percent (5%) like some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided. A month ago, Angle led Reid 48% to 40% but ran poorest against the incumbent of the three GOP primary hopefuls as she has for months. Reid will try to portray Angle, a...

    Health Reform: As major businesses lay out the impact of ObamaCare in dollars and jobs, two things are clear: the costs will be enormous, and the president's vow to focus on "jobs, jobs, jobs" can no longer be believed. Early returns on ObamaCare are coming in, and they belie proponents' claims of job creation and cost reduction. The costs will increase. They are merely being shifted to the states and to America's businesses, large and small. AT&T, the country's largest telephone company, announced Friday it will take a $1 billion first-quarter charge related to the new health care law. The...

When Democrats thought their absolute majorities in the House and Senate guaranteed the passage of government-run health care, they had no use for either GOP input or transparency. White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid were quite content to fundamentally transform one-sixth of the American economy behind the closed doors of a Senate room. They dismissed the rising anger of the...

Why not start by bringing the undocumented Senator out of the shadows? Given the unelected Dems sitting as replacements for Obama and his cabinet appointees, it would demonstrate a particular contempt for the people's voice to hold up the one guy who fought and won an election to get in there.

Reid opined that Obama's race would help him more than hurt him win the Democratic nomination.

The timing of the launch of the “African Americans for Harry Reid” campaign group, which is scheduled for Thursday in Las Vegas, is coincidental. The luncheon had been scheduled for weeks.

Trailing in the polls and under constant attack from the GOP, Reid’s campaign has just launched a warm-and-fuzzy million-dollar ad campaign to reintroduce the veteran senator to his constituents. But Reid’s team also wants to be the one that introduces lesser-known opponents to the electorate — and will be ready, when the time comes, to unleash a torrent of ads...

We survived the mob, Howard Hughes, the Great Depression, several recessions, two world wars, dozens of news competitors and any number of two-bit politicians who couldn't stand scrutiny, much less criticism. We're still here doing what we do for the people of Las Vegas and Nevada. So,...

    Scandal: As the FBI raids Curt Weldon's daughter's house, Harry Reid's sons have benefited from their father's influence undisturbed. Meanwhile, Reid puts campaign funds to personal use and seeks a do-over on his ethics statements. We never cease to be amazed at the double standard applied to the morals and ethics of Democrats and Republicans in Congress. We've already commented on how Republican Mark Foley was forced to resign for sending lewd e-mails to congressional pages, while Democrat Gerry Studds received mere censure and standing ovations after actually having sex with one, being allowed to serve until he decided to...

    Congress: Harry Reid's skill at making money in real estate makes Donald Trump look like an apprentice. If he ever writes his autobiography, it should be called "The Art of the Shady Deal." If you accept Harry Reid's explanation that his most recent land deal is on the square, then he has a bridge to sell you. No, not that bridge. Another bridge built over the Colorado River a few miles from property in northern Arizona he bought at about $167 an acre. He doesn't own that bridge, either. But he has sold land he did not own at the...

    Signs of real Hope and Change from Nevada! Via the Las Vegas Review-Journal: It’s the highest stakes ever for a Nevada election, and former boxer Sen. Harry Reid is on the ropes early. Either Republican Danny Tarkanian or Sue Lowden would knock out Reid in a general election, according to a recent poll of Nevada voters. The results suggest the Democratic Senate majority leader will have to punch hard and often in order to retain his position as the most accomplished politician in state history, in terms of job status. Nevadans favored Tarkanian over Reid 49 percent to 38 percent...

    LAS VEGAS -- A newspaper poll says Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid faces formidable opposition next year when he seeks a fifth term. A survey of 400 registered voters for the Las Vegas Review-Journal released Sunday paints the Democratic incumbent as an underdog when matched against either of two possible Republicans rivals in the election. The poll, taken last week by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research Inc., shows Reid lagging by as many as 11 percentage points against Danny Tarkanian. He had 49 percent to Reid's 38 percent. Tarkanian is a real estate professional and former UNLV basketball player.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: These guys have threatened me again. This was last Friday at the White House, Jake Tapper -- this the presidential daily brief. Jake Tapper says, "Rush Limbaugh went on a very long speech which he compared Democrats to Nazis, the president to Hitler, and I'm wondering if the president's seen any of this. Obviously the Nazi imagery has been condemned by Jewish groups, and I'm wondering if he feels anything about the language being used this way." GIBBS: Any time you make references to what happened in Germany in the Thirties and Forties, I think you're talking...

    Democratic Senators emerged from their working lunch meeting with President Obama at the White House today confident that they would pass health care this year, comparing the President’s lunch invitation as a “pep talk before the game.” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) called out what he called the “loud, shrill voices” that have been interrupting town hall meetings across the country held by Democratic members of Congress and members of the administration on health care reform. “In spite of the loud, shrill voices trying to interrupt town hall meetings and just throwing a monkey wrench into everything, we’re going...

    The issue of President Barack Obama’s birth made it to the Senate floor Monday, as Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) defended the president’s citizenship in a sign of growing frustration and partisanship. Speaking to open the chamber’s daily session, Reid said Republicans are raising the issue of Obama’s birth to distract the public and wound the president’s agenda. Referring to it as “an artificial controversy,” Reid said it “ignores the undeniable and proven fact that President Obama was born in the United States.”

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.) says he wants to enact a new guest worker program as part of a comprehensive immigration reform bill that he is vowing to take up in Congress. Reid announced his intention to enact a new guest worker program last week despite the fact that the economy is in a deep recession and the national unemployment rate has reached 9.4%, a level that has not been seen since 1983 and that is rare in the post-World War II era. President Obama, meanwhile, will host a meeting at the White House on Thursday to discuss comprehensive...
