2. He has an airport named after him

Two weeks ago, the McCarran International Airport, which serves Nevada’s largest city of Las Vegas, was officially renamed Harry Reid International Airport. The Clark County Commission voted to rename the airport in February after Reid, who was the longest-serving senator in the history of Nevada.

Reid is not the only political figure to have an airport named after him.

George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Texas’ largest city of Houston is named after the late former President George H.W. Bush. Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in Arlington, Virginia, one of two airports serving the Washington, D.C. area, is named after the 40th President of the United States. Gerald R. Ford International Airport in Grand Rapids, Michigan, was named in honor of the 38th President of the U.S. John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City was named in honor of the 35th U.S. President.

Similarly, former President Bill Clinton, along with his wife, Hillary, a former first lady and secretary of state, have their names displayed at the airport in Little Rock, Arkansas, which was renamed the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport.
