Outgoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is recovering from injuries that happened while exercising.  The Nevada Democrat broke a number of ribs and bones in his face when a piece of exercise equipment broke, causing him to fall.  Reid's office says it happened in his home. 

He was treated at the University Medical Center in Las Vegas.  The 75-year old Reid expects to be back in Washington next week when the new Congress convenes.  Republicans will take control of the Senate at that time after sweeping victories in November's midterm elections.
