Chris Christie Has Breathing Trouble

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, 48, was taken to the hospital Thursday after having difficulty breathing. Christie's spokesman Michael Drewniak said in an official statement that the governor was hospitalized at Somerset Medical Center in Somerville, N.J., "out of an abundance of caution. In line with someone dealing with asthma, he is being given routine tests as a precautionary measure."

The governor was en route to a 10:30 a.m. bill signing event in Hillsborough, N.J., when the decision was made to go to the hospital. According to his official schedule, Christie was due to "sign legislation that allows for increased preservation of state land and natural resources."

Christie remained at the hospital in Somerville Thursday afternoon with no time set for his release.  Shortness of breath can also come from heart problems.  (New York Post, 7/28/2011)
