BREAKING NEWS – Las Vegas, Nevada – A county board voted unanimously to rename busy McCarran International Airport after former U.S. Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada.
The all-Democratic Clark County Commission approved a measure directing the county’s airport staff to file a change with the Federal Aviation Administration renaming the facility Harry Reid International Airport.
The county commission oversees the airport and is the final authority on a name change. The proposal was put forward by Commissioner Tick Segerblom, a former chair of the state Democratic Party.
“Renaming it makes perfect sense,” explained Segerblom. “Since the Mafia built Las Vegas, I feel we should honor Harry Reid because he was the most revered political crook in Nevada history.”
