After press reports indicated Harry Reid played a major role in pushing Jacky Rosen to run for U.S. Senate, Rosen declined to address Reid in a series of interviews.
Last week, Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-NV) announced she would run against Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) in 2018, after a mere six months serving in the House of Representatives. Press reports indicated ex-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid played a major role in getting Rosen to run for the Senate seat.
As Reid tries to pick yet another senator for the people of Nevada, Rosen seemed clearly uncomfortable with the subject in a series of week-one interviews with Nevada media outlets.
NBC Reno asked Rosen about her conversation with Reid. “Was that a big factor?” the reporter asked Rosen.
Rosen took a second before answering that “the most important factor” was her family, declining to mention or address Reid.
The Reno Gazette-Journal was more direct with Rosen, asking her if she’d be running had Reid not called her.
Rosen noted that Reid had asked her to consider running, but pivoted to the same answer as above: her husband and her daughter helped her make the decision.
While Rosen’s family clearly played a role in her decision to run for U.S. Senate, it appears Rosen is uncomfortable addressing the donkey in the room for her fast climb from computer programmer to U.S. Senate candidate.
