Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) older brother, Don Reid, died Thursday at 85, according to multiple reports.
The reports say the cause of death wasn’t immediately available.
Reid received a phone call about his brother’s death at 3 a.m. on Thursday, the Gazette-Journal reported.
“I’m sorry he [Don Reid] is gone,” he said. “But I don’t feel bad that his heart stopped because he was ready.”
“My brother Don, a wonderful person, had never been one minute in a hospital, prior to those 10 days ago,” Reid said. “He got sick and went from bad to worse, and he died.”
Harry Reid turned 74 last week.
