Bob Dole hospitalized in D.C.

WASHINGTON - Former Senate Republican Leader Bob Dole of Kansas has been hospitalized at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, according to a post on Politico Tuesday afternoon.

Politico says Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made the announcement.

"He is at Walter Reed not for a check up," Reid said on the Senate floor Tuesday. "He is there because he is infirm. He is sick."

CBS News is reporting that an assistant to Dole said in an email that the 89-year-old will leave the hospital tomorrow after a "routine" procedure.
