Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid rarely makes time to travel back to Nevada and listen to the voters who sent him to Washington, according to a Washington Examiner review of Senate disbursement records.
Reid’s office budget showed only 11 trips in three years, far fewer than any other senator.
At the rate of three to four trips per year, Reid was one of seven senators to travel to their home states 11 times a year or fewer.
Other high-profile senior lawmakers have records that aren’t much better. Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein averaged only nine trips to California annually, according to Senate office travel logs. That’s one-third as many as most lawmakers.
