Washington, DC — Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid released the following statement on news that Democrats have won control of the United States Senate.
“The American people have spoken clearly and decisively in favor of Democrats leading this country in a new direction. In Iraq and here at home, Americans have made clear they are tired of the failures of the last six years. The days of the Do Nothing Congress are over. From changing course in Iraq to raising the minimum wage to fixing the health care crisis to making this country energy independent, we’re ready to get to work. Now it is time for Democrats and Republicans to join together and make Congress work for every American.”
