Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is starting to grow on Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV).
Asked at a press conference whether he’s thought about how to make the next year a more productive one for Congress, Reid brought up his growing admiration for the senator from Kentucky.
“I think about it a lot,” Reid told reporters. “I met in the last few days with Rand Paul. I have spent a lot of time with him, and I have grown to really like him. Even though he has some set political views, he wants to get things done here.”
“I find that throughout the Republicans,” Reid added. “I think they want to get things done. And I hope that’s true.”
