LAS VEGAS (Associated Press) — The late U.S. Sen. Harry Reid will be remembered in Las Vegas this weekend by family, friends and the nation’s top Democrats as a fighter, a father and a powerful U.S. and Nevada political figure.

President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer are scheduled to speak Saturday during a memorial for the longtime Senate leader who died Dec. 28 at age 82.

A Biden spokeswoman says the president believes Reid was one of the greatest leaders in Senate history.

Reid family members, former President Barack Obama and a top apostle in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints also will speak, and Vice President Kamala Harris will attend.
