A 5th term is something Senator Harry Reid shares with only three others throughout Nevada's history:
William Morris Stewart, Republican, served 1865-1875
He was responsible for national mining laws and the guiding force behind the 15th Amendment.
John Percival Jones, Republican, served 1873-1903
He pushed to monetize silver.
Key Pittman, Democrat, served 1913-1940
He was chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee and president pro tem, second in line to the presidency.
You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
