Senate Minority Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) on Friday recalled his relationship with House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) on the Senate floor shortly after the speaker announced that he would resign, noting that Boehner would be missed.
Reid said that he had many private meetings with Boehner in order to work out negotiations that "wouldn't have worked out very well in the public eye." Reid said that while he and Boehner often disagreed, the speaker "never, ever misled me."
