Reid Statement On Sen. Kent Conrad’s Retirement

Washington, DC — Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement on Senator Kent Conrad’s announcement today that he will not seek reelection:
“Senator Conrad and I came to the Senate together in 1986, and I will dearly miss both his friendship and his leadership. No one cares more about addressing the national debt than Kent, a man who knows the balance between fiscal responsibility and funding our national priorities. He will be missed here in the Senate, but his legacy will remain long after he leaves. I thank Kent for his years of friendship, and commend him for years of service to his state and this country.”
