Politico in a new article says the mood between Democratic leaders in the House and Senate is "hovering between thinly veiled disdain and outright hostility."
More pointedly, the report from Politico says Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev., stood up in a meeting of House Democrats and said Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., "is going to lose."
Titus denies the remark.
Here’s how Politico lays it out, with a link to the full story:
In a display of contempt unfathomable in the feel-good days after Obama’s Inauguration, freshman Rep. Dina Titus (D-Nev.) stood up at a meeting with Pelosi last week to declare: “Reid is done; he’s going to lose” in November, according to three people who were in the room.
Titus denied Tuesday evening that she had singled out Reid, but she acknowledged that she said Democrats would be “f—-ed” if they failed to heed the lessons of Massachusetts, where Republican Scott Brown won Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat last week.
