Johnson Suffers Possible Stroke; Senate Control Up for Grabs?

Senator Tim Johnson of South Dakota suffered a possible stroke during a phone call with reporters this afternoon, and was taken to George Washington University Hospital.
Should Johnson become disabled, Governor Mike Rounds of South Dakota, a Republican, would name a replacement. If that replacement were a Republican, the Republicans would retain control of the Senate.
Such speculation is highly premature, of course. It is likely that Johnson will be fine. While a Democrat, my impression is that Johnson is a pretty good guy. We wish him the best.
