WASHINGTON (AP) -

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

"Everything is normal," Adam Jentleson, Reid's press secretary, said in a statement. "He is alert, resting and feeling better,"

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.
