Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid may still be recovering from a serious injury, but he hasn’t let that take his eye off the ball. Reports indicate Reid has $1.5 million in the bank heading into the 2016 cycle.
Read is said to have raised over $200,ooo between October and the year’s end.
Other reports filed with the Federal Election Committee indicate Reid’s Republican counterpart, Sen. Mitch McConnell, has $7.4 million in the bank.
Republicans hoping to unseat Reid in Nevada have been anxious to recruit popular Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval to take on Reid. It remains unclear if they’ll be successful in convincing him to run, according to The Hill:
Senate Republicans are unlikely to land their most formidable recruit to take down Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).
With Gov. Brian Sandoval delaying any decision until summer, his indecision is costing Republicans precious time in their quest to oust the party’s biggest target in 2016.
