Sure, why not?': Harry Reid confirms plans for 2016 reelection bid

Just the kind of enthusiasm you want to hear from your elected public servant:

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.”

Reid did have one semi-positive thing to say about Sandoval: "I think he is trying to do the right thing" with Medicaid, he said.

Of course he does: Sandoval was the first Republican governor to embrace President Obama's Medicaid expansion.  "Though I have never liked the Affordable Care Act because of the individual mandate it places on citizens, the increased burden on businesses and concerns about access to health care, the law has been upheld by the Supreme Court," Sandoval said in a statement last December. "As such, I am forced to accept it as today’s reality and I have decided to expand Nevada's Medicaid coverage."
