Reid: Republicans Should Denounce Carson for Muslim Remark

“Shame on Dr. Carson,” Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid says in opening floor comments.

  • Says Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson’s comment that a Muslim shouldn’t be president is “just another example of Republican candidates refusing to speak for 3 million Muslim Americans”
  • Reid also says Republicans in Congress are “more interested in political theater” than figuring out how to prevent a govt shutdown
  • Says procedural vote on anti-abortion bill tomorrow is just “another box to check” for Republican leadership
  • NOTE: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell didn’t give opening remarks
