Harry Reid Slips, Dislocates Shoulder on Morning Run

ABC News(WASHINGTON) -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) slipped and dislocated his shoulder while on a run Wednesday morning, ABC News has learned.

Despite rainy conditions, Reid, 71, was out for a morning jog when he stopped to rest on a car, his hand slipped, and he fell and dislocated his shoulder, according to one of his aides.

The Nevada lawmaker has a scrape above his left eye, but an aide says that Reid is “totally fine” and “in good spirits.”

Reid was not present to kick off the day's proceedings in the Senate, but was expected to arrive on Capitol Hill for work on Wednesday.

Nancy Pelosi Hospitalized, Reports Say

ABC News(ROME) -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was hospitalized in Rome on Monday, according to Italian news agencies.

The ANSA news agency referred to her illness as a “fainting spell” and reports that Pelosi returned to her hotel after a two hour check up at the emergency room.

The former House Speaker was in Italy leading a bipartisan congressional delegation to celebrate the country's 150 year anniversary. The California Democrat had to cancel one meeting with the Italian Minister of Defense due to her feeling unwell, but Pelosi still could attend a concert Monday night in honor of the celebration.

The U.S. Embassy in Rome is aware of the reports, but had no further comment.

Over the weekend Pelosi and the bipartisan delegation flew to Kabul, Afghanistan, to meet with President Hamid Karzai, U.S. troops and military officials.
