Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) suffered a mini-stroke on Tuesday:
The 65-year-old minority leader, one of the Democratic party’s most visible national leaders, was examined by doctors and now feels fine, his press secretary Tessa Hafen said.
“There are no complications or any restrictions on his activities. He has undergone evaluations this week, and his doctors have recommended that he take advantage of the summer congressional recess for some downtime,” Hafen said.
My sincere best wishes and prayers to Sen. Reid for a speedy recovery.
Hat tip: Captain Ed, who has more information on the type of stroke Reid suffered.

After the second stroke, King was unable to speak for several hours and doctors put her on a blood thinner in hopes of preventing clots.
