Markey Statement on Announcement of Senator Harry Reid Retirement
Washington (March 27, 2015) – Senator Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) released the following statement today after Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) announced he will not run for reelection.
“Harry Reid is one of the greatest Democratic leaders in Senate history. Every day he steps out on to the Senate floor, he fights with everything he’s got for the people of Nevada and for all of America’s families and workers. He has led the Democratic Caucus with strength, determination and integrity. He is a clean energy Pied Piper, championing an economy and a future fueled by solar, wind, and geothermal power. He is a steward of our planet and our principles, and our nation is better for his service. I am grateful for his friendship, and look forward to continuing to fight alongside him in the 114th Congress.”
