Harry Reid ‘Intending to Run,’ Expects Swift Recovery

The venue was different, and his face was bruised and bandaged, but Harry Reid was still Harry Reid.

With an American and Nevada flag in the background, along with a bald eagle and a box of “Search Light” matches on the wall over his shoulder, Reid held court with reporters in a meeting room in his Capitol office suite for a news conference that could’ve taken place any Tuesday afternoon near the Senate’s iconic Ohio Clock.

Of course, many of the questions were about the minority leader’s medical prognosis and any effect it might have on his decision about making a run for another six years in the Senate in 2016.

The Nevada Democrat expects to be back to full-time work soon, and intends to run for re-election.
