Reid Congratulates McConnell, Says Democrats ‘Ready to Work in Good Faith’
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid congratulated Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans on the floor Wednesday for regaining the majority, adding, “Senate Democrats are ready to work in good faith” with Republicans.
“I saw firsthand how a strategy of obstruction was debilitating to our system, and I have no desire to engage in that manner,” Reid said. “I’ve been able to strike compromise with my Republican colleagues, and I’m ready to do it again. … Although the desks in this great chamber may move around, and change, our duty to help working American families never will.”
