In this photo taken May 22, 2012, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., speaks to reporters at the Capitol following a political strategy meeting in Washington. Historically voters have valued experience, and half of the Senate's members first served in the House, including seven of the 16 who were elected in 2010. But over the last three election cycles voters have been looking more and more for candidates viewed as fresh faces.  (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
