Cunningham Aide: State Senator To Be Released From Hospital Thursday
West St. Louis County State Senator Jane Cunningham was hospitalized overnight in Jefferson City after feeling light-headed Wednesday at the state capitol.
Missouri State Senator Jane Cunningham (R-Chesterfield) should be back at the State Capitol following a brief hospitalization overnight Wednesday.
Senator Cunningham's chief of staff, Kit Crancer, told Patch Thursday morning that "the Senator is doing well and will be released later today."
According to the Twitter account for the Missouri State Senate, members in the chamber were updated on her health this morning and learned that she would return to the Capitol Thursday.
Cunningham, who is not running for re-election after state legislative redistricting essentially left her without a race to run, became light headed Wednesday during debate on an education bill.
The legislative session ends at 5 p.m. Friday.
