NC senator says "I'm fine" after race collapse

NC senator says

Event spokesperson Jeff Darman said Tillis suffered a seizure and was transported to George Washington University Hospital.

The Republican had tweeted Wednesday morning about taking part in the ACLI Capital Challenge race, an invitational run in Anacostia Park for members of the federal government and the media. "See you back on the Hill", the first-term senator said.

The Associated Press had reported that CPR was used, but in his video message Tillis said that was not the case.

Tillis had been participating in a race in support of Fidelco Guide Dogs, according to his Twitter feed. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., speaks to reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington. Officials said Tillis was one of two runners who collapsed and that the other runner received CPR.

However, Tillis tweeted that he was doing well around 9:45 a.m.

The Republican senator even cracked a joke hours after his collapse, which caused quite a commotion during the race.

WUSA9's Debra Alfarone tweeted a photo of Tillis being helped during the race.

Tillis at first appeared unconscious but was revived and breathing when taken away by ambulance.
