Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid is endorsing New York Senator Chuck Schumer as his leadership successor.

Reid announced today he wouldn’t seek re-election next year, and he told the “Washington Post” he’s endorsing Schumer to take his place.

Schumer is the Senate’s number three Democrat.

The number two Democrat, Senator Dick Durbin, is also considered a front runner.

Reid expects Schumer to win the party’s top post without opposition.

Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi issued a statement on the news that Senator Charles Schumer appears to have the support to succeed Harry Reid as the next Senate Minority Leader:

“Senator Schumer has a personal connection to the Mohawk Valley region.  He is a frequent visitor to our area, and is fond of telling people that his parents lived for a time on Miller Street in Utica.  He knows many of the elected officials in our area, and he clearly knows the issues.  He is knowledgeable and accessible, and if he does become Senate Minority Leader, having someone in this position with his knowledge and interest in our area will be very positive.”
