  • Harry Reid says Sanders needs more than plurality to win Democratic nomination

    Former Senate majority leader Harry M. Reid said Thursday that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) or any presidential candidate should not get the Democratic nomination if they end the primary process in first place but are shy of the requisite majority of delegates. Reid (D-Nev.) dismissed suggestions from Sanders and his supporters that he should become the nominee if he finishes with a plurality lead ahead of the rest of the candidates but short of the 1,991 delegates needed to secure the nomination outright. Reid even suggested that a group of moderate candidates, trailing Sanders overall, could assemble a coalition ahead...

    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...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) highlighted her work with former President Barack Obama and former Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) in a new ad airing in Nevada ahead of the state's caucuses next week. The 30-second clip that is airing across the Silver State starting Saturday and highlights praise from the two former leaders on Warren's work on economic issues, including her time setting up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau under the Obama administration. "She's become perhaps the leading voice in our country on behalf of consumers," Obama says in archival footage included in the video. "Elizabeth understands what I strongly believe...
  • After the meltdown at the Iowa caucuses, Democrats fear a repeat in Nevada (still counting)

    LAS VEGAS - The week of chaos that followed the Iowa caucuses has prompted growing concern about problems in the next state to use that presidential nominating process, Nevada. Voters and campaigns have become increasingly mistrustful of the caucus format since the Iowa vote and are worried that further trouble could throw the Democrats’ 2020 primary process into complete disarray. In Nevada, those fears have only deepened since the state’s Democratic Party was forced to make abrupt changes to its caucus process because it had planned to use an iPad app developed by the same company that developed the mobile...

    The FBI and Utah state prosecutors working on a corruption investigation say they have uncovered accusations of financial wrongdoing by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and GOP Sen. Mike Lee, but the Justice Department has so far declined to act on their recommendation for a full federal investigation. Two district attorneys, one Democrat and one Republican, told The Washington Times, ABC News, and The Salt Lake Tribune this week that they have found evidence of possible financial wrongdoing by the lawmakers relating to suspect campaign contributions and other financial transactions. "There are allegations, but they are very serious allegations and...

    Iowa and New Hampshire get to weigh in first on the Democratic presidential contest next year, but the states are not ethnically diverse enough to offer any insight into how a candidate will fare across the country, former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Sunday. “I don’t think it matters what happens in Iowa or New Hampshire because those states are not representative of the country anymore,” the longtime Nevada senator said. Nevada is the third state to weigh in but the first that looks like the rest of the country, with a sizeable Latino population and significant groups...

    Harry Reid had high praise for President Trump calling him "smart" and hard to beat in a recent appearance. "I used to think that Donald Trump was not too smart. I certainly don't believe that anymore," the former Senate majority leader told David Axelrod in an interview preview that aired Friday on CNN. "I don't think he's intellectually a powerhouse, but he is basically a very, very smart man. No matter what the subject, any argument he involves himself in, it's on his terms." The 79-year-old Nevada Democrat said the Democratic presidential contenders should not be under the illusion that...

Never met her, she knows ZERO about me, has NO talent, and truly doesn’t have the “it” factor needed for success in showbiz and now works for the Comcast/NBC losers making up phony stories about me.

    'There's a sense that conservatism is normal, and that white conservative men are the norm' MSNBC's AM Joy host Joy Reid on Sunday likened the coverage of President Donald Trump to the media's treatment of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Reid and her panel spent several minutes going after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) and claimed he was helping Trump allegedly empower white nationalism, according to Newsbusters. After other panelists spoke, Reid jumped into the conversation to suggest McConnell was intentionally trying to destroy the United States for minorities before they gain power in the future....

    Wednesday during MSNBC’s post-Democratic debate analysis, “AM Joy” anchor Joy Reid expressed her disappointment when the 2020 presidential candidates apparently attacked former President Barack Obama more than President Donald Trump. Reid said, “It was weird for me to watch about almost 40 minutes of — primarily — attacks on the Obama Administration’s policies. It was odd. It took — I mean, de Blasio made a full-on attack of ObamaCare. Essentially said we have no working health care system in America. But hello, we have ObamaCare. So that means the system he’s attacking and saying it isn’t working is ObamaCare.”

    Review Journal ^ | 5/11/19 | Wayne Allyn Root
    **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...

    Trial starts in Las Vegas over Harry Reid’s exercise band injuries Former U.S. Sen. Harry Reid was seated in a wheelchair Monday when his lawyer paused to address the political views emanating from a group of potential jurors in a Las Vegas courtroom. “Our country is about as split as it could be,” said the attorney, Jim Wilkes. “We can’t fix policy today. We’re here about a civil lawsuit. This is about one person’s litigation.” Reid, now 79, sued the makers of a resistance exercise band after an incident that blinded him in his right eye more than four years...

    Former U.S. Sen. Harry Reid told a Nevada jury Thursday that his career was cut short by injuries he suffered when a TheraBand exercise device slipped from his hand and he fell in his home bathroom in 2015. From a wheelchair on the witness stand in a product liability lawsuit against Ohio-based device maker Hygenic Corp., the 79-year-old longtime Democratic leader covered half his face with his hand to indicate the bones he said were “smashed” when he spun around and fell against cabinets in his bathroom. Despite surgeries, he said he has irreparable retina damage and can only distinguish...

    Former Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid has news he is eager to spread: He is feeling "very good." The former US Senator from Nevada was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year, and New York Times Magazine writer Mark Leibovich wrote last month after an interview with Reid that he "does not have long to live." But make no mistake: this Harry Reid is still the same former boxer and political street fighter I covered for decades in the US Senate. A searing critic of President George W. Bush and his administration, Reid now says in the age of Trump, he...

    What's in the news day and night? The wall. It's all anyone talks about or thinks about or debates. Have you heard? The U.S. government is partially shut down over the wall. But it's all a massive liberal scam. A Ponzi scheme. Pure fraud. Bernie Madoff couldn't come up with a better scam. Because the same liberal politicians and donors who scream about the "racism" and "immorality" and "ineffectiveness" of a wall all live behind walls. President Trump needs to buy TV infomercial time and run a 30-minute TV show in a Ross Perot fashion -- featuring aerial views of...

    Former Senate Leader Harry Reid endorsed Mitt Romney as the next Republican presidential nominee in 2020. “I think that he would be a great foil against Trump, and I think that Republicans may even allow him to be nominated to be the Republican nominee,” Reid said. “That would be good for the country.” The former Democratic Senate Leader praised Romney in a recent interview with Nevada radio station KNPR.
