Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley spent the night in the hospital, expected to undergo additional tests, after he felt light-headed while presiding over a state Senate session Monday.

Cawley's spokesman Chad Saylor said Monday evening that Cawley would be staying in Harrisburg Hospital into Tuesday. He said Cawley feels fine and is anxious to return to work.

On Monday, a Capitol nurse examined Cawley after he fell ill and sent him to the hospital.

After becoming lightheaded about 3 p.m., Cawley left the Senate rostrum and went to an adjoining room of the Senate chamber.

Cawley, 44, attended Temple University and served on the Bucks County Board of Commissioners before becoming Gov. Tom Corbett's No. 2.
