WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has been released from a Washington hospital after treatment for exhaustion.

Reid’s spokesman, Adam Jentleson, says that Reid is resting at home after spending much of Friday at George Washington University Hospital.

Jentleson says doctors diagnosed Reid as exhausted but found nothing more serious after tests. Doctors have cleared Reid to return to work.

The 74-year-old Nevada Democrat went to the hospital early Friday after feeling unwell. In 2005, he suffered a mild stroke.
