According to The Associated Press, the two met on Thursday in the Capitol. It's unclear what other Democratic recruits Reid has met recently.
But the Democratic field remains in flux, with a handful of potential contenders already indicating their interest in the seat, including Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.), Secretary of State Natalie Tennant, and former state Democratic Party Chairman Mike Callaghan.
Goodwin, however, remains at the top of many Democrats' lists for the seat. He served briefly in the senate following Sen. Robert Byrd's (D-W.Va.) death, and retains strong name recognition in the state.
