Reid to remain as Dem leader in GOP takeover
WASHINGTON - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will seek to lead the Democrats in the next Congress as they hand over the majority to Republicans.
Adam Jentleson, a spokesman for Reid, said Wednesday that the five-term Nevada Democrat plans to remain leader and other Democrats indicated that he is unlikely to face a challenge.
Democrats suffered a drubbing in Tuesday's elections, losing their majority as Republicans picked up seven seats. The GOP majority could grow with possible wins in Alaska and Louisiana.
Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky is in line to become Majority Leader in the new Congress in January.
Reid is up for re-election in 2016.
