U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., returned Jan. 19, 2008, to his rural hometown of Searchlight, Nev., population approximately 800, for the Nevada Democratic presidential caucus. Reid's folksy charm and occasional awkward manner almost make you forget he's the most powerful official in the U.S. Senate. In that role, he spent months working to bring the first early presidential caucus to the state. And with more than 116,000 Democrats participating statewide, the first early caucus in the West proved to be a success.
