Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., was not feeling well and has gone to the hospital.
His office said in a statement, “Early this morning, Senator Reid was not feeling well and as a precaution decided to go to the hospital. Tests have been conducted and everything is normal. He is alert, resting and feeling better.
“Doctors have asked that he remain in the hospital for observation so he will not be working today.”
Reid turned 74 earlier this month.
The Senate was expected to adjourn Friday for the holiday season.
