Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) dined with five Senate Majority Leaders last weekend. The bipartisan dinner was the biggest gathering of Senate Majority Leaders in history at the Capitol. This record matches one set by the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) in 2012 during a ‘Century of Service’ ceremony honoring BPC Co-founders and former Senate Majority Leaders Howard Baker and Bob Dole.

Senator Reid dined with former Majority Leaders:

  • Tom Daschle (D-SD); BPC Co-founder
  • Bill Frist (R-TN); BPC Senior Fellow and Leader of BPC’s Health Project
  • Trent Lott (R-MS); BPC Senior Fellow and Co-chair of BPC’s Commission on Political Reform and Energy Project
  • George Mitchell (D-ME); BPC Co-founder and Co-chair of BPC’s Housing Commission

We like when our leaders feast, not fight.
