The worst Senate leader in U.S. history has announced that he is finally retiring. Nevada Senator Harry Reid will not run for re-election and will leave office in 2016 at the end of his current–and thankfully last–term.
Reid, 75, noted that his recent injuries helped convince him that it is time to go. So, he’s going to finish this term and won’t run again.
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid announced Friday he will retire at the end of his term, closing a long and controversial career in Congress that spanned four decades.
The five-term Nevada Democratic senator announced the decision in a YouTube video message.
Appearing with bruises on his face from a recent at-home exercising accident, Reid, 75, said the injury has allowed 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.
