NJ Gov. Christie is released from hospital after emergency treatment for asthma
SOMERVILLE, N.J. (AP) ' New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has been released from the hospital following emergency treatment for asthma.
Christie left Somerset Medical Center at 6:30 p.m. Thursday. He was taken there Thursday morning after having difficulty breathing.
The blunt-talking governor, who some Republicans have been trying to persuade to run for president, was headed to a bill signing when he felt unwell.
Christie uses an inhaler for asthma and is overweight. Aides said Christie's EKG, blood work and chest X-ray were normal.
The 48-year-old governor told reporters as he left the hospital that he woke up in the morning not feeling great and his rescue inhaler didn't work as well as it normally does. He says he thought about his kids and decided it would be best to go to the hospital.
