Reid Hangs on, Wins Fifth Term

"There will be time for plenty of finger-pointing, but right now we've got a job to do and we're going to do it," Manley said.

"Obviously, I've got to acknowledge that the results were not pretty, and we'll take some time to think through some of this before getting back to work."

Earlier Tuesday, Reid made two campaign stops at Las Vegas-area campaign offices to encourage volunteers to continue pushing prospective Democratic voters to head to the polls right up until voting ended at 7 p.m. Pacific Time. The Majority Leader told volunteers and campaign staff that their efforts were crucial to pushing him across the finish line.

"People from all over the country have looked at this and said it's the best campaign operation in the history of the country except for a presidential election year. And, frankly, it's a lot better than most of those," Reid told reporters and campaign volunteers at mid day Tuesday during an appearance at a Nevada Democratic party campaign office in Las Vegas.
