(CNN) - Sen. John Warner was admitted to a Washington area hospital Monday for observation after experiencing the return of an irregular heart beat.
According to a statement released by the Virginia Republican's Senate office, Warner experienced a return of atrial fibrillation, a condition he was first treated for last fall. He is currently pursuing a re-evaluation after consulting with his doctors.
Warner, 80, announced last summer he would not seek re-election for a sixth Senate term.
As the elder statemen in my home state of Virginia, please know that all of us here in Virginia wish you well, a speedy recovery and hope you return to the Senate soon to once again guide them along a path of wisdom, level headed thinking and expertise. While I have never voted for a Republican president, I have always voted for you simply because you have never forgotten that you serve the people of Virginia, and this country. You are truly one of the last of the great politicians who serve the people, and not themselves.
I'll be praying for Senator Warner, as I hope the rest of the country will do the same.
God bless him, I hope he's OK.
Don't agree with his politics but I like the guy.
Get well soon Senator.
Great news, Obama got wind of Sen. John Warner's misfortunes and is on his way to heal him
Obama / Warren Steed Jeffs '08
Is this what happens when you endorse or support John McCain?
Our prayers are with Senator Warner for a speedy recovery.
Good Luck Sir
Oh my, that really sucks. I hope all goes well for him.
God speed to his recovery. He is a remarkable man!
you know Warren Steed Jeffs is a filthy Republican.
I'm surprised that someone hasn't found a way to blame Hillary for Sen. Warner's illness. I wish him well and a speedy recovery. He's an honorable man, and a true statesman.
Sentor Warner AF is not bad at all.......you just need a good Doc.
I wish Sen. Warner well and hope his health will allow him to serve out his term, he's always been inspirational speaker. I am a democrat and voting for Obama.
Get well soon, Sen. Warner. You are a decent, trustworthy, hardworking and honorable republican! Your kind are in short supply!
God be with him!
What does article even have to go with Obama...you Obamaporters are hilarious.
Get well soon Senator!
Isn't McCain older than him? Or are they of the same age? I saw him and Lieberman behind McCain in one of their primary-win pictures and I thought to myself, "My ohhh my. These people are old!!!"
Get well soon, Senator. You're one of the few good Republicans left.
Wishing you a complete and speedy recovery.
'An Agnostic Democrat' is an Obama follower. Go figure.
My thoughts go out to Senator Warner and his family and friends.
Jdona, thanks, but I'm from Virginia too and can speak for myself.
He's a Republican. Disgraceful.
But he's also a human being. I wouldn't wish poor health on anyone.
Even Bush, although he needs to be impeached and convicted. You can't be a war criminal and expect me to send a get-well-soon card.
Good luck to Senator Warner.
This is not an appropriate place to take a swipe at other candidates.
John Warner would be in perfectly good health, on his way to live out a fruitful life if not for the Bush Administration. Everyone can clearly see that this is a blatant example of how our health care has suffered due to the illegal war in Iraq. Senator Warner would be in perfectly good health today if not for companies such as Halliburton getting rich by destroying the environment.
We need change because the future is ahead of us. I believe in hope, and hopefully you can believe as well. The time has finally come, where we can truly feel proud to be Americans!
you have overcome much worse get well and GOD bless
Get well soon!!!
