Poll: Moseley-Braun trails in Illinois Senate race (9-13-98)

Senate Women Face A Different Environment In 1998 (7-7-98)


Moseley-Braun continues campaigning despite hospitalization for pneumonia

WASHINGTON (AllPolitics, September 28) -- Sen. Carol Moseley-Braun has been released from Colinas Medical Center in Irving, Texas, after being diagnosed with bronchial pneumonia. Moseley-Braun fell ill Sunday on a airplane flight from Chicago to Dallas.

The senator had trouble breathing and was given oxygen before the flight landed and paramedics took her to a local hospital. The Democrat from Illinois was travelling to fund-raisers in Dallas and Houston.

A spokesman for Moseley-Braun said she was still "under the weather" Monday morning but planned to keep her fund-raising schedule in Texas before heading back to Chicago.

The only black woman ever elected to the Senate, Moseley-Braun, 51, was scheduled to return to Chicago Monday night "in time to root for the Cubs," according to a statement from her office.

The first-term senator is currently in a heated battle to retain her seat this November. A Chicago Tribune poll published over the weekend showed Moseley-Braun trailing her Republican challenger, State Sen. Peter Fitzgerald, by 10 points.
