(DES MOINES REGISTER) — Republican Rick Santorum has canceled his appearances at two Iowa fundraisers tomorrow due to illness.

A spokeswoman said Santorum, while traveling in South Carolina on Saturday, “became ill and was admitted to the hospital for a gastro-intestinal illness and dehydration.”

“He is feeling better today but remains in the hospital and is unable to travel to Iowa on Monday, April 15 for previously scheduled events,” spokeswoman Virginia Davis said. “He is expected to resume a full schedule later this week and looks forward to returning to Iowa soon.”
