Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he thinks legalized prostitution could work against Nevada's efforts to host the 2016 Republican National Convention.  

Reid is supportive of proposals to bring the GOP nominating soiree two years from now to Las Vegas . Prostitution actually is illegal in Clark County, which is home to Vegas. Still, Reid said while back in his home state over recess that prostitution "would be an issue" for the convention.
