CBS News reports:

"He is at Walter Reed not for a checkup," (Senate Majority Leader Harry) Reid said on the Senate floor. "He is there because he is infirm. He is sick."

Shortly after Reid's comments, however, an assistant to Dole told CBS News in an email that Dole will leave the hospital tomorrow after a "routine" procedure.

"He checked himself in for a routine procedure and will discharge tomorrow," Dole's assistant said. "Doing well and watching the CRPD debate on CSPAN 2."
