WASHINGTON
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was hospitalized early Friday after feeling unwell and undergoing tests that revealed nothing wrong, his spokesman said.

In Reid’s absence, Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., opened the chamber’s last session of the year by saying he spoke with Reid and the Nevada Democrat is feeling good. Reid and another Democratic leader, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., spoke Friday morning about the appropriations process, a Senate Democratic official said.

The 74-year-old Reid suffered a mild stroke in 2005.

The Senate is winding through its final day in session with a deal to confirm two of President Barack Obama’s nominees, leaving dozens more for consideration next year. They include Janet Yellen, Obama’s choice to chair the Federal Reserve.
