Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said he'll run for a sixth term in the Senate in 2016 — though it doesn't sound like he's given the bid much thought at this point.

"Sure, why not?" he responded when asked by a Nevada reporter if he'll run again.

Reid, who won a hard-fought reelection battle in 2010, will be 76 in 2016.

He refused to speculate on whether Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval (R) would run against him. Sandoval, a popular governor, would likely be Republicans' best chance at the seat in the Democratic-trending state.

"Hey, I don't get involved in fights I don't have to," Reid said when asked about whether Sandoval might run.

He praised the governor's work, saying he is "trying to do the right thing" for the state.
