American Gaming Association (AGA) President and CEO Bill Miller issued the following statement on the passing of Senator Harry Reid:
From his days as chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission to tenure as Majority Leader, Senator Reid’s impact on Nevada and the gaming industry is unparalleled. He was the ultimate gaming champion.
I’m grateful for having known the Senator throughout my career in Washington, D.C. Without a shadow of a doubt, Senator Reid was one of the sharpest, most effective political minds to ever enter the arena.
On behalf of the AGA, our condolences to his wife, family and friends. May his memory be a blessing.
