In an interview with POLITICO, not only did Reid suggest he’d stay as leader for the remaining four years of his cur[r]ent Senate term, but the Nevada Democrat said he’d run for reelection in November 2016, when he’d be close to turning 77 years old. It would make him the longest-serving Senate leader since Montana Democrat Mike Mansfield, who was majority leader from 1961 to 1977.
“I have this one and one more Congress before I have to run for reelection,” Reid said. “I’m planning on running for reelection.” …
When asked whether he wants to stay on as majority leader throughout his tenure in the Senate, the answer was an emphatic yes.
“Oh sure,” Reid said. “Why not?”
