Report: McConnell will stay out of Nevada

It’s been reported before, but a piece in Roll Call this morning reiterates that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell will not travel to Nevada to campaign against his leadership counterpart Sen. Harry Reid.

The two have an unspoken deal to at least try to return some decorum to the Senate, Roll Call said.  Reid did not campaign against McConnell two years ago when his leadership counterpart was up for re-election in Kentucky.

The campaign activities of Senate leaders became an issue in 2004, when then-Majority Leader Bill Frist campaigned in South Dakota against then-Democratic leader Tom Daschle.  

According to Roll Call, it was "a deviation from tradition that rankled even many Republicans who were otherwise happy to see Daschle ousted."
