Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada has been hospitalized and will miss what is likely to be the chamber’s last day of work in 2013, his office said.
“Early this morning, Senator Reid was not feeling well and as a precaution decided to go to the hospital,” spokesman Adam Jentleson said in a statement. “Tests have been conducted and everything is normal. He is alert, resting and feeling better.”
But “doctors have asked that he remain in the hospital for observation so he will not be working today,” Jentleson said.
Reid turned 74 on Dec. 2.
