DFL Sen. Kubly hospitalized in St. Paul

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Sen. Gary Kubly remains hospitalized in St. Paul after suffering what his family describes as cardiac-like symptoms earlier this week.

Kubly's wife, Pat, says her husband is sedated and in stable condition at Regions Hospital. The family says more could be learned Friday about what caused the senator's symptoms.

The 68-year-old Kubly was diagnosed about a year ago with ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease, which affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. The Lutheran pastor, from Granite Falls, is in his third term representing District 20 in the Minnesota Senate.

The West Central Tribune reports Kubly became ill at his home on Wednesday.
