Reid: No Group is Harder On Me Than Fellow Mormons

posted on January 23, 2017

The Salt Lake Tribune’s Peggy Fletcher Stack interviews recently retired Senator Harry Reid, a Mormon and a Democrat. In response to a question that asked about his political party, Reid said, “I have said many times the reason I’m a Democrat is because I’m a Mormon. Those who have criticized me over the years because of my political positions are wrong and I’m right.” He later added, “I’ve had a lot of opposition in my 50 years in politics, but no group has been more difficult and hard on me than [LDS] church members — sending letters to my bishop saying I shouldn’t get a recommend.”
