Burris to Meet Reid

Roland Burris, Blago's pick to fill Obama's Senate seat, may find himself locked out of the Senate chamber on Tuesday, but at least he has a meeting with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to look forward to on Wednesday. Senate Majority Whip and Illinois senior Senator Dick Durbin is arranging the meeting between Burris and Reid, ABC News reports. Blago, meanwhile, has revealed that Reid called him shortly before his arrest to discuss three replacements for Obama: Jesse Jackson Jr., Danny Davis, and Emil Jones. A Blago spokesman said, "It seems to the governor that Sen. Reid has a horse in the race and Roland Burris isn't one of them."
