Rep. Rob Bishop In Hospital After Suffering "Mild" Stroke

Republican U.S. Rep. Rob Bishop says he has been hospitalized after suffering a “mild” stroke earlier this week. Bishop told KSL NewsRadio Wednesday that he felt a loss of balance, dizziness and difficulty maneuvering his right side, but his condition is improving. He is recovering at George Washington University Hospital and doesn’t anticipate any long-lasting symptoms. The Utah congressman experienced the stroke Monday night, forcing him to miss a Tuesday vote on the National Defense Authorization Act. The legislation passed with a veto-proof majority. Bishop, who became well-known for his outspoken policies on public lands, will retire when his term ends later this month.
