New Jersey Gov. Christie Rushed to Hospital With Breathing Problems

(FoxNews.com) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was taken to a hospital Thursday for tests after having difficulty breathing.

Christie was being driven to a farm in central New Jersey to sign open-space legislation when the governor had difficulty breathing and was taken to Somerset Medical Center out of an "abundance of caution," Christie spokesman Michael Drewniak said.

"In line with someone dealing with asthma, he is being given routine tests as a precautionary measure," Drewniak said. "The governor is extremely grateful for the quality of care he is receiving this morning and has nothing but praise for the world-class doctors, nurses and staff."
