Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum has cancelled a trip to Iowa after being hospitalized over the weekend for dehydration and gastrointestinal illness, The Hill has reported.
Virginia Davis, a spokesperson for Santorum's political action committee Patriot Voices, said in a statement that while travelling in South Carolina on Saturday, the Republican became ill and was admitted to the hospital for a gastro-intestinal illness and dehydration.
Santorum, who ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, was scheduled to give the keynote address at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition's Annual Spring Kickoff on Monday, the Huffington Post reports.
According to a press release, Santorum was planning to address how the Republican Party should continue to focus on social as well as economic issues going forward.
Santorum won the Iowa caucuses in January 2012, and his scheduled return to the Hawkeye State has sparked some speculation that the Republican is eyeing another presidential bid. (ANI)
