During an interview with CNBC's John Harwood, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said that he wasn't worried about the apparent lack of a challenger for Hillary Clinton because she doesn't need to be tested in the primaries, what with the Republican candidates all being "losers."
Party primaries -- in which candidates from the same party are thought by many to provide ammunition that the opposing party can use against them in the general election -- don't help, Reid said, when the candidates already have the name recognition of someone like Hillary Clinton.
Reid was not, however, worried that the Republicans might acquire more effective means of critiquing Clinton; when Harwood asked him to assess the GOP's current slate of candidates, he simply dismissed them.
"I don't really care [about them]," he said. "I think they're all losers."
The Nevada senator also expressed optimism that the Democrats would be able to retake the Senate in the next election, saying that the odds were "far better than 50-50."
