From NBC's Huma Zaidi
Speaking to reporters on the Hill just a few moments ago, Sen. Harry Reid said he feels "confident" that Sen. Tim Johnson will make a "good recovery." Reid, who has been visiting Johnson at the George Washington University Hospital, added, though, that he would not comment further on Johnson's medical condition because no matter what he says it "would not be enough for [the press]."
Asked what Johnson's condition might mean for the balance of power in the Senate, Reid said things are proceeding as normal on the Hill. "There isn't a thing that's changed," Reid said.
