Reid: No Big Deal That Obama Isn’t Giving Us Election Money

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) downplayed reports that President Obama’s reelection campaign recently informed Democratic leaders that it will not be utilizing its funds to help congressional Dems in the November elections.

“I don’t know why anyone’s concerned about the conversations that we had,” Reid said Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union. “It’s the same conversation I’ve had with presidents over the years. They have to guard their money. I didn’t expect them to bring their checkbook with them.”

Reid added that he maintains a very good relationship with the White House.
