Harry Reid aiming to ‘win’ with Senate immigration bill

If the Senate's immigration overhaul bill goes to negotiations with the House, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said it would "win."

According to Reid, who spoke with Las Vegas public radio station KNPR, public opinion sides with the Senate and the bipartisan "Gang of Eight's" comprehensive immigration reform. Though Reid said he suspected House Republicans would attempt to block deliberation, he added, "if we go to conference, we would win."
