Senator Tom Harkin (retired) has released the following statement about Senator Harry Reid.
“Harry was both a political and personal friend and confidant for over 25 years. He was passionate in his commitment to economic and social justice, and used his leadership positions to advance both. Harry had a keen perception and understanding of human personalities and used this skill to reach compromises and advance legislation. Ruth and I send our condolences to Landra and the family. Harry will remain always in our fondest memories.“ – Senator Tom Harkin
