Sen. Tim Johnson (D-SD) suffers probable stroke


It wasn't a stroke. From AP/Yahoo:

WASHINGTON - Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson (news, bio, voting record) of South Dakota was hospitalized after becoming disoriented Wednesday, weeks before his party is to take control of the Senate by a one-vote margin.

Johnson, who turns 60 on Dec. 28, was admitted to George Washington University Hospital with an undiagnosed illness, said a spokeswoman, Julianne Fisher.

She said, however, the senator did not suffer a stroke or heart attack. His office had said earlier it was a possible stroke.

I'm glad it wasn't a stroke or heart attack. Here's hoping that they find out exactly what happened and that it's not serious.

From Fox News:

WASHINGTON — South Dakota Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson was admitted Wednesday to George Washington University hospital in Washington, D.C., for symptoms aides say indicate a stroke.

"As this stage, he is undergoing a comprehensive evaluation by the stroke team. Further details will be forthcoming when more is known," said a statement released from his office.

I share DeLay's sentiments. Get well soon, Sen. Johnson.
