Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took time out Tuesday from budgets and politics to comment on one of the day's biggest controversies: The decision that gave boxer Timothy Bradley a much-criticized victory over Manny Pacquiao Saturday.
Reid, a Nevada Democrat, did not attend the fight--it was his wife's birthday. But Reid, a former Nevada Athletic Commission member, has some experience with fights.
"It's hard to do," he said of judging bouts. "It's an inexact science."
But, he said, from all the reports he's seen, "Pacquiao won the fight."
Reid expressed faith in the Nevada attorney general, who he called a "wonderful woman."
"She'll do our best," Reid said, "I feel confident there's been nothing untoward, but if an investigation makes everyone feel better, do the investigation. I don't care about that at all."
