U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid went to a hospital today after feeling ill, his office said. Tests showed that “everything is normal” though he will remain in the hospital for observation, his office said.

“Senator Reid called me thing morning,” second-ranking Senate Democrat Dick Durbin said on the Senate floor. “He sounded good, and we look forward to his speedy recovery.”

Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson said in a statement that the majority leader, 74, felt ill early this morning “and as a precaution decided to go to the hospital.”

“Tests have been conducted and everything is normal,” Jentleson said. “He is alert, resting and feeling better.”

Jentleson added, “Doctors have asked that he remain in the hospital for observation so he will not be working today.”

Durbin of Illinois said he will act in Reid’s place as the Senate conducts a number of votes today. Reid is a Nevada Democrat
