LAS VEGAS —

The wife of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is recovering from stage 2 breast cancer and chemotherapy.

Reid said in Las Vegas this week that his wife, Landra, had six more weeks of radiation to finish her treatment.

Reid notes that he hadn't visited Nevada often since he announced in September 2011 that his wife was diagnosed with cancer and was receiving chemotherapy in Washington, D.C.

He says he returned to his home state this week while the Senate is on Easter break because his wife was "doing really well." He says he would be "coming home more" because of her improvement.

During his wife's cancer treatment, Reid oversaw major policy debates in the Senate on health care, taxes and the federal budget.

Landra and Harry Reid wed in 1959.
