The former presidential candidate, Bob Dole, 94, who battled with Bill Clinton in the 1996 election, has been hospitalized for more than a week due to low blood pressure.
A spokeswoman for Dole, Marion Watkins, said that Dole was admitted to the Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, on Sept. 13. “After a routine check-up it was determined that he had low blood pressure which they’re correcting with medication,” Watkins said. “Right now they hope to release him within a matter of days.”
However, his stay has now lasted for a week. Will you please pray for this man, who lost to Bill Clinton 379-159 in the 1996 election (in terms of electoral college votes). The former Republican Leader of the United States Senate and long-time Senator from Kansas was previously the vice-presidential running mate of President Gerald Ford in 1976.
“We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake. You became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit.”
