“I am honored to provide Nevadans with the opportunity to attend the Presidential Inauguration ceremonies and be a part of history in the making,” said Reid. “The Inaugural brings with it a sense of hope and unity in Washington and around our country. I thank all Nevadans who entered into the drawing and I look forward to seeing those selected at the Capitol.”
