    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...

    Voters now know a thing or two about Harry Reid's type -- the Senate majority leader, speaking at a fundraiser Monday, reportedly called New York Sen. 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...
  • New Poll Has Harry Reid Leading Sharron Angle in Nevada Senate Race

    (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...

    Wash Post ^ | 6/11/10 | David Maddow-Weigel
    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...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | June 10, 2010
    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...

    When thousands of peaceful, Tea Party protestors came to Harry Reid’s hometown of Searchlight, Nev. last Saturday, you would have thought that the favorite son of this hardscrabble, mining town would garner tons of local support. Not so. Members of IBEW Local 357 were called to action to agitate the crowd and, as we’ve previously shown, to hurl eggs at the busses carrying them.

    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...

    States' Rights: Idaho requires its attorney general to sue the feds if ObamaCare passes while Virginia, the cradle of liberty, heads the line of states in front of the federal courtroom. Somewhere Patrick Henry is smiling. As the second coming of King George III seeks to impose the leftist mandate of national health insurance on the unwilling American people, the states are once again in revolt. This time they're unwilling to be the colonies of an imperial federal government determined to spend and tax us into bankruptcy while treating the Constitution as if it were bird cage liner. Is this...

    Union Influence: The White House picks its most frequent visitor to sit on its deficit commission. He believes in big government, in big spending, and that the workers of the world should unite. What could go wrong? Computer security firms have been known to hire the best former hackers because they know best how to stop others like them. But the appointment of Andy Stern, president of the Service Employee International Union (SEIU), to a bipartisan commission to come up with ways to deal with the rapidly rising federal budget deficit is like having a serial arsonist organize Fire Prevention...

    Politics: As the grass-roots activists meet with the Republican National Committee, the New York Times takes a look at them, deciding they are bitter people clinging to their guns. Meanwhile, leading Democrats plot their destruction. No doubt the meeting between representatives of the Tea Party movement and RNC Chairman Michael Steele will be seen by uber-liberals as confirmation that the Tea Party movement is merely a franchise of the vast right-wing conspiracy. In fact, Steele was merely doing what the Democrats still refuse to do — listen to Americans frustrated by a government that ignores their wishes and dismisses their...

    Politics: The GOP has been invited by the administration to a health care summit. Will it be an effort to pass real reform, or an attempt to lure Republicans into a bipartisan disaster? 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...

    Health Care: Will the administration seize the moment of Scott Brown's victory to work out real solutions, or will it follow Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid over the cliff? Or is it just about government control? Before Sen.-elect Brown became the Scott heard 'round the world, House Speaker Pelosi was asked what his victory in the bluest of blue states would mean. "Certainly the dynamic will change depending on what happens in Massachusetts," she replied in a bit of an understatement. The dynamic has changed, yet the Democrats, as the country song goes, apparently don't know when to hold them...
