Delaware AG hospitalized
DOVER, Delaware: The White House released a statement early this morning about the hospitalization of Vice-President Joseph Biden's forty-one year old son, Beau, the Attorney General of Delaware. The press release states that Beau Biden is currently undergoing medical treatment at the Christiana Medical Center in Newark, Delaware. "He is alert and awake, and communicating with his parents and his wife" who are present with him at this time. There is no indication at the present moment why the Delaware Attorney General has been hospitalized, but as this is a breaking story there will be continuous updates as they occur.
Beau had at one time been tapped to fill the United States Senate seat left vacate after his father became Vice President. He, however, decided against such action, emailing supporters in late- January 2010 that he would "run for re-election as attorney general rather than seek the Democratic nomination for Senate."
