Never Mind!

From Roll Call (subscription only):

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) appears to be having trouble figuring out when, how or even whether he can bring comprehensive immigration reform to the Senate floor this year.

The Majority Leader, who faces a tight reelection race in Nevada, has been adamant when speaking to Latino audiences that he will pass something on the issue. . . .

But on Tuesday, Reid backed off that pledge amid a packed Senate schedule of jobs bills, appropriations measures and the confirmation process for a Supreme Court nominee. Reid acknowledged to reporters, “we won’t get to immigration reform this work period.”
