LAS VEGAS, NV – U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) issued the following statement on the passing of former United States Senator and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid:
“Senator Reid was an inspiration to me and so many Nevadans. A former boxer from Searchlight, he taught me that it is always worth fighting the good fight, and I am forever grateful for his friendship over the years. Senator Reid carried our state to new heights – nobody has done more in the history of our state to advance Nevada’s interests.
Senator Reid also saw the potential in others and helped them grow to that potential. He was exceptionally kind and had a boundless passion for improving the lives of hardworking families. My thoughts and condolences are with Landra and Senator Reid’s entire family during this difficult time.”
