Harry Reid To GOP: Come At Me

April 28, 2014 2:32 p.m.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Monday taunted Republicans who are attacking him in their Senate races, citing a recent Wall Street Journal article documenting the ways the Nevada Democrat has become a fixture in GOP campaigns.

“In Senate races across the country, Republicans will avoid the issues that matter most to Americans. Instead trying to focus attention on a senator not even up for election. That senator is me,” he said on the Senate floor on the day the chamber returned from a two-week recess.

True to form, Reid used the opportunity to — yet again — tie Republicans to the billionaire Koch brothers after contrasting his party’s agenda with the GOP’s agenda.

“Charles and David Koch and their radical henchmen — feel free to attack me as much as you want. I can take it,” he said. “But don’t expect the American people to be fooled by this newest tactic.”
