UPDATE: Gordon appears briefly at Mississippi Capitol

By The Associated Press

JACKSON — State Sen. Jack Gordon made a brief appearance Wednesday at the state Capitol, days after being hospitalized for an undisclosed condition.

The 65-year-old Democrat from Okolona says he left the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson only for a short time because he wanted to see his legislative colleagues. He returned to the hospital after the visit.

Sen. Terry Burton of Newton says Gordon just wanted everybody at the Capitol to know he is “alive and well.”

Gordon was in critical condition after being admitted to UMC early Sunday. That was upgraded to good condition by Monday.
