Searchlight Survivor

Scrappy majority Leader hangs on in Nevada.

Reid plans Wednesday Nevada presser.

From Reid’s victory speech:

“Today Nevada chose hope over fear.”

“Nevada made this choice because we know it’s not about us versus them.”

“I wish my voice could convey what’s in my heart.”

“I’ve been in some pretty tough fights in my day. They’ve been in the street … been in a boxing ring … and they’ve been in the United States Senate … This has been one of the toughest.”

“If a poor kid from Searchlight can make it, anybody can make it.”

Kerry statement:

“Politico was wrong, Huffington Post was wrong, hell, all the pundits were wrong. Harry Reid isn’t just Dracula, he isn’t just Lazarus, he’s our Leader and our whole caucus is thrilled that he’s unbreakable and unbeatable.”

Menendez statement:

“Congratulations to Majority Leader Harry Reid on his victory tonight. Despite being the number one target for National Republicans this election cycle, Leader Reid showed why, as a former boxer, he can never be counted out. Leader Reid’s victory tonight is not only a testament to his decades of hard work on behalf of the people of Nevada, but it’s also a reflection of the strong leadership he has shown tackling the major issues facing our country today. All Americans who seek a fairer, safer, more prosperous country are better off with Harry leading the charge in the United States Senate. I look forward to working with him as we continue to fight for America’s middle class.”
