Senator Reid was released from the hospital today after sustaining several broken bones in an exercising accident. Yesterday a workout machine he was using broke, causing him to fall.

His office issued the following statement:

“On Thursday, Senator Reid received treatment at University Medical Center in Las Vegas for injuries sustained in an accident he suffered while exercising at home in Henderson.

“A piece of equipment Senator Reid was using to exercise broke, causing him to fall and break a number of ribs and bones in his face.

“Senator Reid will return to Washington this weekend and be in the office Tuesday as the Senate prepares to reconvene. His doctors expect a full recovery.

“Senator Reid was first brought to St. Rose Dominican Hospital in Henderson by his security detail. He was then transferred to UMC for further testing, where he was admitted overnight as a precaution.”

According to ABC News, Reid spent the day, “talking to fellow senators, friends and staff and preparing for the Senate’s return,” his office said, adding Reid is “ready to get back to work.”

While we don’t always agree with his politics, we wish the Senator a speedy recovery.
