WASHINGTON -- Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson of South Dakota suffered a possible stroke Wednesday and was taken to a Washington hospital, weeks before his party was to take control of the Senate by a one-vote margin.
Spokeswoman, Julianne Fisher said the senator did not suffer a stroke or heart attack. His office had said earlier it was a possible stroke.
He was taken to the hospital, where doctors were evaluating his condition.
Democrats won a 51-49 majority in the November election. South Dakota's Republican governor, Mike Rounds, would appoint a replacement to serve until the 2008 election should Johnson die or resign.
Here is the entire article.
We all wish Senator Johnson well.

He had surgery last night and is listed in critical condition. My thoughts and prayers are with him, and for our nation.
