State Sen. Haines is hospitalized

February 19, 2002|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

State Sen. Larry E. Haines of Carroll County was taken from the State House to Anne Arundel Medical Center last night after complaining of chest pains.

Haines received initial treatment at the State House infirmary, and a doctor there persuaded him to go to the hospital for further tests. Haines, 63, was alert and sitting up on a gurney as he was wheeled from the State House basement about 8:45 p.m., shortly after the Senate had convened.

Haines, a Republican, is the Senate minority whip. He has talked about challenging U.S. Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett for his 6th District congressional seat in this year's primary.

His condition was not immediately known.
