Breaking: Pat Leahy taken to hospital

“This evening, Senator Leahy was in his Capitol office and was not feeling well,” his spokesman David Carle said in a written statement.

“He was examined in the Capitol by the Attending Physician,” Carle said.

“Out of an abundance of caution, the Attending Physician recommended that he be taken to a local hospital for observation, where he is now, and where he is being evaluated.”
