Reid Statement On Sen. Jeff Bingaman’s Retirement

Washington, DCNevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement on Senator Jeff Bingaman’s announcement today that he will not seek reelection:

“Senator Bingaman will be missed here in the Senate, but his legacy of advocating for the environment, wildlife, public lands and developing our own green energy sources will remain long after he leaves. He may be a quiet man, but he has been a strong and dedicated advocate for the people of New Mexico, and a good friend to me. I thank Jeff for his years of service to his state and our country.”
