Sen. Reid's Position Could be in Jeopardy

Ad Feedback

Sen. Harry Reid's position as Majority Leader may be up for discussion at next week's Democratic caucus meeting.

Tuesday, Sen. Russ Feingold, one of the most liberal members of the Senate, called Reid's remarks "unacceptable."

Reid is dealing with fallout for saying President Obama was an appealing candidate because he is "light skinned" and has "no negro dialect."

The president has accepted Reid's apology.

Meanwhile, a top House Republican says the GOP needs to put a priority on reaching out to minorities.

"I believe that Americans in the African-American community or in the Hispanic community in this country believe in entrepreneurial capitalism [and] want to have the opportunity to build a business on their own," U.S. Representative Mike Pence said. "And I also believe that in the minority community, there is a deep commitment to traditional marriage and the sanctity of life."
