Harry Reid: $1.7 Million Sale of My Home Will Create 60 Jobs!

Reid and his wife Landra sold their home in Searchlight for $1.7 million to Nevada Milling and Mining, a mining company, over the weekend. Reid said, according to KSNV, that the the expansion of the mine allowed by the sale will create about 60 jobs.
