Ron Paul's wife was hospitalized Saturday morning, the Texas Republican's presidential campaign announced shortly before voting was to begin in the Ames GOP straw poll. The campaign did not say why Carol Paul was taken to the hospital, but emphasized she is out of danger. "Carol Paul became ill this morning and was taken to an area hospital," Jesse Benton, a Paul spokesman, stated in an email. "She appears to have stabilized and is awaiting treatment. Dr. Paul is with her and will arrive at the Straw Poll when the situation permits." Paul is considered a long shot to win the Republican nomination. He joins most of the contenders vying for the GOP nomination in Ames Saturday for the Iowa Republican Party sanctioned straw poll. - http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2007/08/11/ron-pauls-wife-hospitialized-in-iowa Get well soon, Carol!
