LAS VEGAS, April 24 (UPI) -- U.S. Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada is finding that his position as minority leader is giving him both fans and new enemies.
Reid has been able to stall Senate legislation most Republicans would like to see passed, the Las Vegan Sun reports.
But Reid, known as a conservative Democrat before he became leader of the party caucus, could be losing voters in Nevada, where he did not support President George Bush.
Reid has another four years before he must face the voters in 2008. He spent the Easter recess in Nevada, with much of his time devoted to speaking to groups of police officers, firefighters and other professions known for a certain toughness.
