(CNN) – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is making it official.

The four term Democratic senator from Nevada will file for re-election Monday in Las Vegas, according to Reid's campaign.

While he's raised a large amount of campaign cash, polls of Nevada voters suggest that Reid faces a very difficult re-election.

    Big NEWS FLASH Harry Reid does not stand a chance. We all know what is going to happen to the persons in congress that don't want to listen to WE THE PEOPLE who elected them and made this Nation the best their is. While BIG GOVERMENT EXPANSION in this Obama/Pelosi/Reid/ type socolistic mind set is killing our Freedoms one by one. It's not just Harry and the Democrats mind you it is all in
    Congress that don't have the backbone to do what the people of this Great Nation exected them to do. WE need term limits, just like we
    have for President and we will cut our proplems big time
    God Bless America and for all for which she Stand.

    And, come November, the good people of Nevada will formally toss Reid, and his hat, out of the Senate.

    If the people of Nevada are smart, they would re-elect Senator Reid.

    People need to stop letting Republicans scare them into voting against themselves. If you are rich and well to do, then vote republican if not, vote for the party who considers the poor and are trying to extend health care to those who are in need.
