Former Rep. Ron Paul was hospitalized on Friday in Texas for “precautionary” reasons, Fox News reported.
Paul is 85 years old. He was speaking about federal stimulus money during a livestream on his YouTube channel when his speech began to slur earlier in the day.
Paul served as a Republican congressman for years and has made three bids to become president: in 1988 as a libertarian and twice in 2008 and 2012 as a Republican.
Paul’s son, Rand Paul, is a U.S. senator from Kentucky.
