Our thoughts and prayers are with Senator Johnson and his family.

South Dakota Senator Hospitalized

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.

Johnson became disoriented during a conference call with reporters at midday Wednesday, stuttering in response to a question. He was taken by ambulance to the hospital, where doctors were evaluating his condition.

Two more years.
