Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is scheduled to speak at the DNC tonight in the 7 p.m. EST hour. Expect him to continue his crusade for Mitt Romney to release more tax returns, according to the Las Vegas Sun:
During his speech to the Democratic National Convention tonight, Reid plans to keep up the pressure on Romney to release his tax returns. …
Although Nevada’s DNC delegation hopes sticking with that line will increase the crowd-pleasing quotient of the majority leader’s speech, they’re being cautious about predicting how rousing they expect Reid’s rhetoric to be.
“Harry is not flashy. He’s not a great orator. But his message is very straightforward, and it’s very sincere,” said Linda Cavazos, a Nevada delegate and an Obama for America volunteer.
“The thing I like about Harry Reid is he gets up there and he speaks in his nice, soft voice, and people shut up and listen to him,” said Richard Collins, a Nevada delegate.
