Reid said he was not pushing Sanders to make any decisions about his presidential campaign one way or the other.
“I’m in a good place with Bernie,” Reid said. “Bernie’s going to be very good for the party.”
After his meeting with Reid, Sanders headed for a private sitdown with Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York, the presumed Senate Democratic leader next year after Reid retires.
