The Senate’s top two leaders took to the floor Thursday morning to affirm their friendship. After Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell gave his opening speech on the year-end spending and tax package, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid sought to clear the air after Politico reported that the relationship between the two leaders had reached a “new low.” “I really brush aside most press. I don’t let it bother me. But once in a while something comes along that does,” Reid said as he took out a copy of the newspaper. “And there was an article in one of the Hill newspapers this day that really troubled me.” “Mitch McConnell and I are friends,” Reid said.
