Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is calling for the end of the Iowa Caucus, according to Vice News.
In an interview, the Nevada Democrat said: “Iowa has forfeited its chance to be number one. I don't think that'll happen anymore.
“Since the debacle in Iowa, (pundits) have been talking about Nevada should be the first state,” he said. “Why? Because we’re a state that’s heavily diverse. It’s really a state that represents what the country is all about. So, I think that Iowa really was an embarrassment to everybody.”
The Nevada Caucus will be on Feb. 22.
Vice News noted that despite his retirement and health issues, Reid remains the most powerful Democrat in the state.
He told Vice News he has spoken with Sen. Amy Klobuchar, former Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Elizabeth Warren “in the last few days."
Reid said he spoke with former Vice President Joe Biden about two weeks ago and is in regular contact with Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign manager Faiz Shakir, one of his former staffers.
