Former U.S. Senator George McGovern is in a Florida hospital, just days after taking part in a fundraising event in South Dakota.
A statement from his family says that McGovern is being evaluated because of spells when he passes out and is unable to speak.
The family says McGovern is undergoing additional testing and resting comfortably.
He was just in South Dakota last weekend to take part in the annual McGovern Day, which is a fundraising event for the South Dakota Democratic Party.
