The body of former Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid lies in state Wednesday, Jan. 12, in the Capitol rotunda.

His former congressional colleagues including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy paid tribute to the senator from Nevada. He was remembered as a political force and a pragmatic dealmaker.

Reid – who had been treated for pancreatic cancer – died last month at the age of 82.
