Yet that comity began to break down in September when Reid returned from August recess to assail Heller, who was appointed to finish the term of disgraced Sen. John Ensign, for not wrangling enough GOP votes to make introducing a poker bill viable.

The move, seen as an effort to make Heller appear ineffectual to constituents in advance of his election matchup for a full term with Reid protégé Rep. Shelley Berkley, instigated an unusual internecine feud between senators of the same state, which prompted Kyl to defend Heller and express ire toward Reid.

“A lot of the things Sen. Reid did I don’t think were done with the singular objective of passing the bill. It was really about getting Shelley elected,” said a key tribal lobbyist who requested anonymity so as to not run afoul of the nation’s most powerful Democratic legislator. “He failed on both fronts.”
