Former Senator Bob Dole, 89, is hospitalized, but expected to be discharged on Wednesday, according to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Reid spoke on the Senate floor Tuesday. He said Dole had a routine procedure, but it was "not for a checkup."

"He is sick," Reid said.

Dole has been fighting a leg infection since 2009. A World War II injury left his right arm disabled and his left arm partially disabled.
