Nevada Senate: Obama to Appear with Reid Next Month
January 20, 2010 by senatus
President Obama “will appear with politically embattled Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) in Las Vegas next month, according to a White House official,” Congressional Quarterly reports.
While it is not clear whether the appearance will be overtly political, any appearance by the president in Reid’s home state is likely to be seen as an effort to buck up Reid’s re-election effort.
Reid faces a difficult race and trails potential Republican challengers in some recent polls.
CQ Politics rates the general election race as a Tossup.
