Harry Reid seems to be a little fragile.
Nevada Democrat Harry Reid’s party took a beating in the November elections, and now he has the bruises to show it.
Reid, who will switch from majority leader to minority leader this weekend, broke some ribs and facial bones on Thursday while he was exercising at his home in the Las Vegas suburb of Henderson.
His Senate office told reporters on Friday that he would be at work in Washington, D.C. in the coming days, following treatment at University Medical Center in Las Vegas.
‘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,’ read a statement from his office.
Reid’s doctors ‘expect a full recovery.’
‘Senator Reid will return to Washington this weekend and be in the office Tuesday as the Senate prepares to reconvene,’ the statement continued.
