Outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), not surprisingly, hasn’t held back in various departing statements, including what he really thinks about his party’s set of likeliest 2020 presidential nominees. The Hill reports:
The prospective class of Democrats who could run for president in 2020 is shaping up as an “old-folks’ home,” according to Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.).
Reid, the outgoing Senate Democratic leader, made the remark earlier this month when asked by an aide whether he might support a White House run by Vice President Biden, according to New York Magazine.
In response to the question, Reid mentioned the age of several prominent Democrats who are talked about as likely candidates in 2020.
“It depends on who’s running,” Reid told his staff. “It appears we’re going to have an old-folks’ home. We’ve got [Elizabeth] Warren; she’ll be 71. Biden will be 78. Bernie [Sanders] will be 79.”
