The unions and some casino owners in southern Nevada pushed for Reid. There were many RINOs in Nevada who endorsed Reid rather than his opponent, who they didn't like. The Republican party in Nevada is split between the old guard and the Ron Paul people. Watch what happens with the Nevada delegation to the Rep convention. I don't know anybody who voted for Reid, either, but then I live in Reno. The mayor of Reno, Bob Cashell, a Republican, endorsed Reid. At least, Cashell will be out next year due to term limits. Wish we had term limits on Reid and other long-term elected persons who have developed serious cronyism and look for ways to push legislation through that benefits their friends and donors.
