DNC on Passing of Senator Harry Reid

DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement in response to the passing of former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid:

“Senator Harry Reid was a true lion of the Senate. He was as tough as they come. A great man, and a great leader. We’ve all heard the countless stories of how he changed the course of history, but Senator Reid’s greatest strength was that he remained humble through it all and never forgot where he came from. Senator Reid gave us a masterclass in what it meant to serve and fight on behalf of the people he represented. My deepest condolences go out to his family, friends, and the entire state of Nevada. While we lost an American icon, his memory will not be forgotten – and my hope is that we can strive to emulate his leadership and follow in his footsteps to create a better country for all.”
