U-Sen.Harry Reid, elinye lamalungu aphezulu e-Democratic Party, ugqiba umsebenzi wakhe omde eneminyaka engama-76. Ekupheleni kwalo nyaka, uMnu. Reid uzothatha umhlala-phantsi endaweni yokubalekela unyulo kwakhona. iNdlu yeeNgwevu. Kwiqela leDemokhrasi elidinga kakhulu ubuso obutsha kunye nemibono emitsha, utshintsho kufuneka lwamkeleke, njengendlu yeeNgwevu enefuthe elikhulu kunye negama lakhe ezopolitiko ezonakeleyo ndiyingcolisile iDemocratic Party.

Iminyaka, uMnu Reid uzikhethele ngokwakhe ukuba ngabaphi abaviwa base-Nevada eDemocratic Establishment babeka izixhobo zabo ngasemva kunyulo ngalunye, nto leyo eyenza ukuba kungabikho mntu unokwakha iphulo elinamandla ngaphandle kwentsikelelo yakhe. Ngo-2016, uSenen Reid uye waqhubeka nokulawula ngesandla esisodwa iNevada yeDemocratic Party. Yena kukhethwe ngesandla Igqwetha Jikelele u-Catherine Cortez Masto-ukubambela isihlalo sakhe se-senate-ukongeza ekukhetheni ukuba ngabaphi abagqatswa kumatshini wakhe weDemokhrasi obaxhasayo kolunye unyulo. Ukusuka kulawulo lweNevada ekhuphisana ngokusondeleyo Uhlanga oluphambili lweCongress ukuya echaza Iiparameter ezithile ekufuneka uHillary Clinton avalele kuzo isekela likamongameli, uSen. Reid wakhe uhlobo olutsha lwenkohliso kwezopolitiko.

Nangona uMnu Reid wayengakhethi cala engena kwiikhokhasi ze-Nevada, njengoko iphulo lika-Bernie Sanders laba namandla ngokwaneleyo ukuba libe liva ecaleni kwakhe, i-senator yaqala ukubiza ubabalo. Ukunceda UHillary clinton cudisa i uloyiso olusecaleni ENevada-ilizwe lokuvota kwangoko ubukhulu becala ngenxa kwimpembelelo kaMnu Reid-ngesicelo sakhe, abanini bekhasino bathumela abasebenzi babo ukuba baye kukhukula ii-caucus. Nangona uvoto lukaNevada lwaluphuma yehle phantse ngama-30 epesenti ukusuka 2008, iindawo yekhasino zikhuselwe UNks Clinton ukusuka ekoyisweni okulihlazo.

UMnu Reid ekuqaleni ibango ukungakhethi kwakhe (phambi kweekhokhasi zeNevada) wazalwa ngumnqweno wokunyusa ubhaliso lwabavoti kunye nokuvota phakathi kweedemokhrasi -kodwa, kungekudala emva kweekhokhasi, indlu yeeNgwevu ngokusesikweni kuvunyelwe UNks Clinton Kwaye saqhubeka nokusebenza ngokuchasene nomkhankaso weSanders. Emva kwezidubedube kwiNgqungquthela yeDemokhrasi kaRhulumente yaseNevada, uMnu Reid isasazekile izityholo zobuxoki zokuba abaxhasi bakaMnu Sanders babenobundlobongela-ukuya kuthi ga ekutyholeni ubuqu UBernie Sanders yokugweba izenzo zabo. Umnumzana Sanders wema nabalandeli bakhe, egcina ukuba izityholo zibubuxoki, kwaye ekugqibeleni u-Reid waphendula ukugxeka Isiteyitimenti esikhutshwe ngumkhankaso weSanders asisiyonyani. Emva kwemizamo yokusekwa kweDemokhrasi 'iinzame zokuthula UMnu Sanders ' abaxhasi wabuyela umva-endaweni yoko, ebonelela ngephulo lakhe ngomfutho omtsha-uMnu. Reid kubizwe Ekusungulweni komsebenzi uBernie Sanders.

Umsebenzi weCongress of Mr. Reid kunye noMnu Sanders baphumle ngokwahlukileyo. Ngelixa uMnu.Sanders ehlanganyele kurhwaphilizo, umdla okhethekileyo kunye nabaphembeleli, uMnumzana Reid uwamkele-ekonyusa amandla akhe ezopolitiko ngokudibana kosapho kunye nabahlobo abasebenza njengabaphembeleli kuwo onke amashishini amakhulu e-Nevada.

Ngo-2003, ILos Angeles Times kuphandwe uSen. Reid's Ibhili I-Clark County Conservation of Public Land and Natural Resources Act ka-2002, yafumanisa ukuba umthetho wawusebenzisa okusingqongileyo njengesiqhumane esinomsi ukubonelela ngeenzuzo ezixhonyiweyo kubaphuhlisi bezindlu nemihlaba, iinkampani kunye namaziko endawo awayehlawula amakhulu amawaka eedola kwimirhumo yokuphembelela. kumafemu oonyana bakhe kunye nomkhwenyana, iingxelo ze-lobbyist federal zibonisa.

Ngokuqinisekileyo, impembelelo kaMnu Reid ifikelela kumaphephandaba. Ngo-2015 , Umhlalutyi wezopolitiko waseNevada uJon Ralston ibango umhleli we Las Vegas Ilanga wala ukupapasha ikholamu ayibhalileyo ngo-2012 kuMnu Reid. Isigqibo sokuvimba isiqwenga sikaMnu. Ralston-esivavanye izityholo zikaMnu Reid ezingafundiswanga zokuba umgqatswa wongameli wase-2012 u-Mitt Romney akazange ahlawule rhafu kwiminyaka elishumi-wayejolise ekukhuseleni uSen. Reid ekugxekweni. Emva koko, uMnu. Ralston warhoxa kule nkampani.

U-Reid uza kwenza nantoni na eyimfuneko ukuphumelela, nokuba yeyiphi na indawo edabini, kwaye indlela yakhe eqinisekileyo noRomney ibonisa ukuba emva kweminyaka engama-25, asikazi ukuba uphi umgca-ukuba ngenene uzobe omnye, wabhala UMnu Ralston, a inkululeko . Njengomntu woluntu ekwakunyanzelekile ukuba anyamezele izityholo ezinobundlobongela kwaye ezihlala zingenabungozi-ngee-1970s, waye wanxulunyaniswa nolwaphulo-mthetho olulungelelanisiweyo emva kokuba umgulukudu eqhayisa ngokuba naye epokothweni-ungacinga ukuba uReid uzakuba novakalelo ngakumbi kula maqhinga.

Ngokuchasene noko: amaqhinga ezopolitiko ka-Sen. Reid aye angabinantloni kwaye angcolile ngexesha lakhe lezopolitiko. Ukhokele iNevada kunye nomthetho kurhulumente phantsi kwe ukuzenzisa ukuba iinzame zakhe zazizezona zilungele abahlali bakhe. Ngokwenyani, yonke into awayeyenza yayikukuqhubela phambili umsebenzi wakhe wezopolitiko kunye umdla okhethekileyo yabo banceda ukuseka kunye nokugcina igunya lakhe eNevada.
