Former congressional colleagues to pay tribute to Reid, who will lie in state at U.S. Capitol


Biden, during Reid’s Las Vegas funeral, remembered him as a loyal ally who worked out agreements and stuck to them. Former president Barack Obama, who delivered the eulogy Saturday, said Reid encouraged him to run for the White House at a time when most of the Democratic Party aligned behind Hillary Clinton in 2008. The senator, Obama said, was one who “always chose progress.”
