Sen. Thom Tillis collapsed during a Washington, D.C. race Wednesday morning and was taken away in an ambulance after reportedly receiving CPR.
Tillis, R-N.C., at first appeared unconscious but was revived and seen breathing as he left the scene.
A source told Fox News that Tillis was awake at the hospital and it appeared he had suffered from dehydration.
The 57-year-old was seen on the ground being administered to by bystanders at about the two-mile mark in the three-mile race in Anacostia Park in the southeast part of the city.
Tillis was competing in the ACLI Capital Challenge 3 Mile Team Race. According to the race website, the Capital Challenge “attracts scores of members of Congress, high-ranking political appointees, Generals, Admirals, television correspondents, print and web reporters, Federal Judges and other Washington VIPs.”
Update: He’s fine

I'm doing well. Looking forward to getting back to work. Thanks for all of your prayers and well wishes. #CapChallenge pic.twitter.com/uQGQp85qzR
