(Laura Myers of Las Vegas Review-Journal) – And then there were … plenty of people who might run for retiring U.S. Sen. Harry Reid’s Senate seat.
But not former U.S. Rep. Shelley Berkley, D-Nev., U.S. Rep. Joe Heck, R-Nev., or the senator’s son, Rory Reid.

“I’m not even considering” running, Reid told the Review-Journal. “I’m happy with my life.”
Rory Reid lost a gubernatorial race in 2010 to GOP Gov. Brian Sandoval then retired from politics.
Berkley said her phone has been “ringing off the hook” since Harry Reid, 75, announced Friday that he would retire rather than run for a sixth Senate term. But she said she’s happy in her current job as CEO and senior provost of Touro University Nevada and Touro University California.
