We suspect Democrats will be just as happy as regular Americans. Expect to see a lot of this with the rapidly aging Democrat leadership.
A day after being selected to lead Republicans’ 2016 Senate campaign, Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) said Friday that Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev,) “may decide to retire” instead of facing the tough campaign the GOP will bring against him.
The new National Republican Senatorial Committee chairman pointed out that Nevada’s Republican governor, Brian Sandoval, who was just reelected overwhelmingly, could run against Reid in 2016.
“To me, that state is going Republican,” Wicker said on MSNBC. “I think Governor Sandoval has a real good opportunity now after a great run as governor, perhaps to run for senator. So, you know, frankly I’ll say this: I think Harry Reid may decide to retire. That’s my prediction.”
Reid won a tough race in 2010 against Republican Sharron Angle, whom Democrats were able to paint as extreme.
Wicker was asked if Republicans would go after Reid with the same force that Democrats went after Republican leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), this year.
“Well, absolutely,” Wicker said. “But you know, more importantly I think that the citizens of Nevada will go after Harry Reid. I think he’s out of step with the state.”
He’s out of step with most of America. Time to slither off, Dingy.
