Regardless of your political persuasion, pray for Sen. Tillis.
Tillis was elected to the Senate in 2014, following an eight year stint in the House of Representatives.
UPDATE: The AP is reporting that Tillis “first appeared unconscious but was revived and breathing when taken away by ambulance from the ACLI Capital Challenge 3 Mile Team Race.” Thanks to alert bystanders for performing CPR.
UPDATE 10:12 AM. It turns out there was no SPR.
Senator Tillis tweeted a short video. “I’m fine. Just running two and a half miles in, got overheated, no CPR, no special measures, just checking me out. See you back on the Hill.”
The scare certainly had many praying for him, and I’m glad he’s okay.
