WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid says he doesn't think top Republican Mitch McConnell is serious when he says his No. 1 goal is to make Barack Obama a one-term president.
Reid, D-Nev., says he believes McConnell, R-Ky., is more concerned with the economy, immigration and other problems facing the country.
McConnell has drawn criticism from Democrats for saying that denying Obama a second term is his chief priority.
Reid says that if Republicans have made defeating Obama's re-election bid the focus of the next two years, then "that's a bad place to place your cards."
Reid made the comments on NBC's "Meet the Press."
