Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told the capital press corps at the Nevada Legislature Wednesday night that he will seek re-election in 2016.

The news conference came after he gave a speech to state lawmakers, like Reid does every legislative session.

When asked if he would run for re-election, Reid said, “Sure, why not?"

When asked if he thought Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval would run against him, Reid said, “Oh, I don’t know.”

When asked if he could beat Sandoval, Reid said, “Hey, I don’t get involved in fights I don’t have to.”

When reminded that he was a boxer in his youth, Reid replied, “But I’m not stupid.”

1. No, he didn't he will run.

He said, "Sure, why not?", which is not anywhere close to an affirmative response.

He might be considering it, but he didn't say he was going to run.

Typical RG-J headline.
