The Nevada Senate candidate was allegedly recruited by the former Democratic Senate leader to run.
Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-NV), a candidate to challenge Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) in the 2018 midterms, dodged on questions regarding her contact with former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in an appearance on MSNBC on Wednesday.
MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson asked Rosen if Reid had requested that the first-term congresswoman run against Heller.
“A lot of people talked to me about running, but I’ll tell you the honest truth, no one can talk you into this,” Rosen said, dodging. “It’s really hard, and you have to do it.”
Rosen then offered various platitudes and familial anecdotes about her decision to run.
Jackson pressed, though, and Rosen eventually admitted that Reid had talked to her about running.
