Governor taken to hospital with breathing difficulties

Gov. Chris Christie was taken to Somerset Medical Center prior to his scheduled press conference this morning with what a spokesman described as difficulty breathing.

According to a spokesman, the governor, who is an asthmatic, is doing fine.

“In line with someone dealing with asthma, he is being given routine tests as a precautionary measure,” said spokesman Michael Drewniak.   “The Governor is extremely grateful for the quality of care he is receiving this morning and has nothing but praise for the world-class doctors, nurses and staff.”
