Former US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has died.
I covered @SenatorReid for years in #Nevada before he became a national figure. He lost his first bid for the US Senate and subsequently was defeated in the Las Vegas mayor's race. He then served as Nevada Gaming Commission chairman from 1977-81, which is where I first met him.
"You son of a bitch, you tried to bribe me!" Reid once yelled as he tried to choke Jack Gordon in an @FBI bust (which Reid had arranged). Gordon later would become husband of @latoyajackson.
