Sen. Harry Reid said Wednesday that he plans to ask Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Pat Leahy to consider making an exception to the Senate’s usual process and move Elissa Cadish’s judicial nomination to the Nevada federal bench ahead over Sen. Dean Heller’s objections.

But he didn’t sound that optimistic that anything would come of it.

“I am going to visit with Pat and go over it,” Reid said. “But I don’t think he will do it.”
