Reid Facing Revolt Among Moderate Democrats

Wednesday, 05 January 2011 02:02 PM

The Republican triumph in last year’s elections made Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s job more difficult in all kinds of different ways. Not least is the fact that he’s going to have trouble holding on to his Democratic Caucus, Politico reports.

So they’ll want to shift to the right. “I’m already running into it,” Reid’s top deputy, Majority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., told Politico in late December. “People say, ‘I’m up in two years.’ And I understand it. It’s part of being a senator and a candidate yourself.”

But some liberal Democrats reject any kind of compromise with Republicans, so Reid will be stuck between a rock and a hard place.
