FILE - In this Sept. 19, 2012 file photo, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nev. speaks with reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington. At the top of their roosts in Washington, leaders of Congress are, as usual, turning out to be niche players on the national campaign stage. More junior House and Senate leaders are out campaigning and raising money as well _ not just to win this year's races, but to shore up rank and file support for when it's their turn to run for the top jobs on Capitol Hill.
