Reid Prevails in Nevada

Looks like Chuck Schumer will have to put aside his dreams of becoming Senate Majority leader: Senator Harry Reid survived a hard-fought challenge from Tea Party icon Sharron Angle to hold on to his job. The race captured the national spotlight, coming to symbolize the anti-incumbent fury of the Tea Party movement. Reid’s victory will put to rest jockeying within the Democratic caucus in the Senate over who should succeed him as majority leader. Reid, 70, will now begin his fifth term in the Senate.
