Harry Reid Reflects on Life of Wendell Ford

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid reflected on the life of the late former Sen. Wendell Ford, calling Ford a “fine man” during a news conference in Reid’s Capitol office suite.

“As a new senator I met with him,” Reid said. “He said ‘I am from Kentucky, I drink Kentucky bourbon, and I smoke Kentucky cigarettes all the time’ … He was a fine man, people in Kentucky love him, as they should.”
