I asked Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid, after he caucused in Searchlight, what was in store next for Nevada. An early caucus in 2012 caucus?
“We’ll have wait and see. There’s a big push to change the process so that we would have regional primaries. I’ll take a look at that. The only committee I’m still on is the Rules Committee. We’ll take a close look at it and see if we’ll do it again.
"If we have regional primaries then we won’t. But if we have the same process we will because it’s been a success for Nevada.”
How did he think Nevada has been portrayed in the weeks leading up to the caucus?
“Very favorably. We’ve had two debates on national television. I think it summed it up the other night at the debate each of the three were trying to out anti Yucca Mountain each other. That’s great.”
