Longtime Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid will not seek re-election, he said Friday. Reid, who sustained face and rib injuries earlier this year in an exercise accident, made the announcement in a video to supporters. “This accident has caused Landra and I to have a little downtime,” he said. “I have had time to ponder and to think. We’ve got to be more concerned about the country, the Senate, the state of Nevada than about ourselves. And as a result of that I’m not going to run for re-election.”
