U.S. Rep. Howard Coble has been admitted to Cone Hospital in his hometown of Greensboro for tests. Coble has been experiencing bouts of dizziness and light-headedness for the past few weeks, his spokesman Ed McDonald said in a news release.
The Republican congressman, who’s 81, will spend the night in the hospital for observation and tests. Doctors say his vital signs look good, McDonald said.
According to the news release:
McDonald, who travelled with Rep. Coble all last week during the district work period, said the congressman maintained a full schedule. “We travelled to Alamance, Orange and Rockingham counties and had many meetings throughout the 6th District,”
McDonald said. “There were times last week when Howard said he was feeling light-
headed and needed to sit rather than walk or stand, but he still maintained all of the
meetings and tours scheduled.”
