Zell Miller sent to the ER with flu-like symptoms at Northeast Georgia Medical Center.
GAINESVILLE, Ga. – Former Sen. Zell Miller fell ill while giving a speech Thursday night and was taken to a hospital emergency room. His wife said he had flu-like symptoms.
Miller, 73, was in stable condition at Northeast Georgia Medical Center, according to nursing supervisor Tammy Harbison. She said she did not know what made Miller ill. The hospital said Miller was alert and cracking jokes, but would likely be kept overnight.
Miller, who gave a fiery keynote speech against fellow Democrats at last year’s Republican National Convention, left the Senate in January.
He was Georgia’s governor from 1991 to 1999
