Missouri House Member Hospitalized
JEFFERSON CITY (AP) - A Democratic Missouri House member is undergoing tests after being taken to a Jefferson City hospital.
House Minority Leader Jake Hummel says Rep. Rory Ellinger, of University City, felt sick Monday afternoon and was taken to the hospital.
Ellinger is a 72-year-old attorney. He dropped a planned re-election bid earlier this month, citing health reasons.
Ellinger was first elected to the House in 2010. He is a former University City School Board member and previously served as the general counsel for the Missouri Public Service Commission.
