Earlier this morning, Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) was rushed to the hospital in Cape Cod, Massachusetts with the “symptoms of a stroke.” Kennedy, who is 76, was transfered to Mass General Hospital in Boston after being treated in the emergency room.

Update

Via BarbinMD at DailyKos, CNN’s Ed Henry is reporting that “a Kennedy source says that the Senator himself at about 10:30 a.m. called someone to say he couldn’t host a luncheon. That would have been more than two hours after the original 911 call.”


Update

,The AP reports that Kennedy had a seizure, not a stroke as was originally reported. His spokeswoman, Stephanie Cutter, says he is “resting comfortably.”
