Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., was taken to a hospital in Washington, D.C., for tests and will be hospitalized overnight “as a precaution,” his office said Thursday evening.
The 82-year-old senator was not feeling well at his residence in McLean, Virginia, late on Thursday.
He’ll remain hospitalized for observation overnight.
Leahy, the longest-serving member of the U.S. Senate, announced last year that he will retire at the end of his term.
