Harry Reid has announced that he will not seek reelection in 2016, saying that he wants to leave the Senate while he's still going strong. Reid said the timing of his retirement has nothing to do with his recent injuries nor being demoted from majority leader in November. Reid has endorsed New York Senator Chuck Schumer to become the next Democratic leader.
