Former U-S Senator Alan Simpson Recovering From Stroke

   The family of former Wyoming U.S. Sen. Alan Simpson says he is in stable condition after a stroke on Monday.

Simpson was initially taken to Cody Regional Hospital in northwest Wyoming.

      The 89-year-old had a blood clot removed from an artery, which his son Colin Simpson says most likely caused the stroke. 

      The younger Simpson says his father is coherent with good vital signs at Swedish Medical Center in a Denver suburb, where he’s being evaluated for future risks

      Alan Simpson represented Wyoming as a U.S. senator for 3 terms, from 1979 to 1997.
