Dare County Commissioner Warren Judge was transported to Sentara Heart Hospital in Norfolk, Va., last night, where he is undergoing treatment and tests.
This afternoon, Sandy Semans Ross, a spokesperson for the Dare County Democratic Party, confirmed that Judge suffered a heart attack. No other information on his condition was available.
A short message posted on Warren Judge’s N.C. House campaign website this morning states: “Last night, Warren fell ill and was transported to a Virginia hospital where he is undergoing tests and treatment. He is receiving the best care possible and more information will be provided when available. Please send him good thoughts and prayers.”
Judge is a Democrat who has been on the Dare County Board of Commissioners for 16 years and is running against Republican and fellow commissioner, Beverly Boswell, for the N.C. District 6 House seat being vacated by Rep. Paul Tine, unaffiliated of Kitty Hawk.
Earlier today, Boswell posted on her campaign website, “Praying for Warren Judge and a speedy recovery.”
