Fox News, CNN, and others are reporting Senator Tim Johnson, D-South Dakota, has suffered a stroke in his D.C. office and was taken to George Washington University Hospital about 11:30 this morning.
Senator Johnson served as Congressman from 1986-1996. In 1996 he was elected to the Senate.
If he is unable to finish his term, his replacement would be decided by Republican Governor Mike Rounds ... and the balance of power may shift in the Senate.
Our prayers are with the Johnson family at this time. Before the accusations begin ... no, the Republicans are not circling ... Senator Johnson may be fine and recuperate completely from this -- he is, after all, a young man of 60 -- but the situation has been put out there by all the news services for consideration.
