Sen. Frank Lautenberg (above) might take issue with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (below) attempting to reinstate former Sen. Bob Kerreys seniority should he again run for Senate and win a deal Lautenberg himself didnt receive in a similar situation in 2002.
An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was involved in negotiating Sen. Frank Lautenberg's (D-N.J.) return to seniority. He was not. The story also incorrectly stated why Lautenberg was more senior than Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.). It was because Lautenberg was appointed to the seat shortly before Bingaman took office.
