Harry Reid

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid is backing New York Sen. Chuck Schumer to succeed him as Democratic leader. Reno Public Radio's Michelle Bliss reports that Reid issued his endorsement Friday morning, shortly after announcing he will retire next year instead of running for re-election.

Reid was first elected to the Senate almost thirty years ago.

Those were some of the topics addressed by Reid when he visited the studios of Reno Public Radio this week.

Reid says he's not optimistic about getting more funding for Lake Tahoe restoration projects.
