Georgia U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson has been hospitalized in Atlanta. He was taken there Monday after complaining of feeling ill and being dehydrated.

This statement was released by Isakson's office:

"Senator Isakson woke up yesterday feeling ill and very dehydrated, and he was admitted to Northside Hospital to receive fluids and undergo tests. Doctors believe Senator Isakson is suffering from a bacterial infection.

Senator Isakson is responding very well to the treatment and is feeling much better. He met this morning with his Senate chief of staff at the hospital and hopes to be back at work soon," spokeswoman Joan Kirchner said.
