Nevada Senator Harry Reid announced early Friday that he will retire at the end of his term.
The Senate Minority Leader said in a video message and press release that he will not seek re-election next year.
“I want to be able to go out at the top of my game,” he said. “I don’t want to be a 42-year-old trying to become a designated hitter.”
If the Twitterverse is any indication he won’t be missed by many.
@SenatorReid i thought your life's work was enriching urself with shady land deals, insider trading benefits, and tabling over 300 bills

@SenatorReid You have been the most divisive, destructive and partisan speaker in history. Subverted troops in Iraq and lied about the ACA.

@foxandfriends Hey, we know the real reason even if he won't say it. He's under investigation and Obama wants him gone. That's all.

Could Harry Reid’s part in visa scandal be connected to his retirement announcement?
