U.S. Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) was hospitalized over the weekend after suffering a stroke.
Van Hollen, 63, the second Democrat senator to suffer a stroke in recent months, was admitted to George Washington University Hospital after experiencing lightheadedness and severe neck pain while giving a speech in western Maryland.
“An angiogram indicated that I had experienced a minor stroke in the form of a small venous tear at the beach of my head,” Van Hollen said in a statement late May 15. “Fortunately, I have been informed that there are no long-term effects or damage as a result of this incident, but my doctors have advised that out of an abundance of caution I remain under observation for a few days.”
