“This morning, Attorney General Beau Biden was admitted to Christiana Hospital,” said Jason Miller, a spokesman for Beau Biden. “He is alert and awake, and communicating with his parents and his wife, who are with him.”

Dr. Timothy Gardner, the Medical Director of the Center for Heart and Vascular Surgery at Christiana Care Health System, said Beau Biden was hospitalized after having ‘what we believe to be a mild stroke.’

“He is in good spirits and talking with his family at the hospital,” Gardner said. “He is fully alert, in stable condition and has full motor and speech skills.” He said he expects Biden to make a complete recovery.

Beau Biden previously considered running for the U.S. Senate seat his father held before becoming vice president, but in the end he decided against it.
