NEW YORK (Reuters) – New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was taken to the hospital on Thursday after having “difficulty breathing,” his spokesman said.
“Governor Christie was having difficulty breathing this morning and out of an abundance of caution he went to Somerset Medical Center to be checked out,” spokesman Michael Drewniak said in a statement.
“In line with someone dealing with asthma, he is being given routine tests as a precautionary measure,” he said.
