|Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) announced his retirement. He will finish his term as the Senate Minority Leader.|
This latest development may have given the Republicans an opportunity to pick up a crucial swing.
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has announced he's pulling out. He declared his retirement.
This along with Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Sen. Dan Coats (R-IN), Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) and possibly Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) are exiting the stage.
Republicans are hoping to hold on to Indiana, Louisiana, and Florida. They hope that pickups in Nevada and Colorado could boost their majority.
Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) is the most vulnerable Democratic member of the Senate.
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) are the most vulnerable Republican members of the Senate.
Reid's exit may help the Democrats get more of a backbone. Reid may have fought for the majority, but he let the conservative agitators tear him apart and make him more evil than the devil. He and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) were sent to the status of Minority Leader after Republicans swept to victory in 2010 and 2014.
Reid had suffered a serious eye injury in 2014 after falling on his exercise equipment. The injury could permanently blind him in the eye.
The race for the White House began when Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) announced his intentions to run.
He is the first declared clown running for the Republican nomination. The insurgent senator is off to a rocky start. He declared his intentions to repeal Obamacare despite him signing up for it. He caught a lot of flack after admitting that the "federal exchanges" were the only thing good about the law.
So some of his most staunchest supporters are scratching their heads and also quietly whispering.
They wondering what the fuck just happen? They were so excited, and now this!
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) another member of the insurgency is thinking about jumping into the clown car.
Reid's exit is good for America. We can't have a Koch sucker like him in the Senate. I rather let the stupid ass Republicans have it then let them spineless Democrats continue to protect it.
