George McGovern released from Fla. hospitalFla. hospital says former presidential candidate, SD senator George McGovern released
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) ' A hospital official says former South Dakota senator and Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern has been released from a Florida hospital.
McGovern's daughter has said her 89-year-old father was admitted to Flagler Hospital in St. Augustine on Tuesday for tests to determine why he was occasionally passing out and losing his ability to speak.
The hospital's nursing supervisor, Patty McAnnally (MACK'-uh-nal-ee), says McGovern was released from the hospital Thursday afternoon.
McGovern splits his time between Florida and South Dakota and has been hospitalized several times in recent months.
In December, he fell and hit his head in Mitchell, S.D., just minutes before he was to be interviewed live on C-SPAN for a program about his influence on politics.
McGovern lost the 1972 presidential race to President Richard Nixon.
