Senator Reid Faces Off Against Washington Redskins

Yesterday representatives with the Washington Redskins launched a Twitter attack against Senator Harry Reid. Team officials called for fans to show their "Redskin Pride." Senator Reid, along with numerous other senators, has asked Redskin's owner Daniel Snyder to change the name of the team because it is offensive to Native Americans. The problem with this social media campaign is that some of the team's fans actually told the senator they support him and want to change the team name. Mr. Snyder has repeatedly said he will not change the name.
