Jackson no longer patient at Mayo Clinic

(CNN) - Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. is no longer being treated at the Mayo Clinic for what he described last month as "several serious health issues," clinic spokesman Nick Hanson said Tuesday.

The Illinois congressman had returned to the center in September for what Hanson described as a "follow-up evaluation to ensure he is on the path to properly manage his health." He won his bid for a tenth term in the U.S. House last week despite making no public campaign appearances and having been out of the public eye since May.
