Tom Ridge in criticial condition following emergency heart procedure

Ridge, who was also the first U.S. Homeland Security secretary, remains at Dell Seton Medical Center at the University of Texas, where he underwent cardiac catheterization, a procedure created to help diagnose and treat heart problems.

According to a representative Ridge was in Texas for the Republican Governors Association Conference and became ill. "We'd ask those of you who have been sending prayers to keep them coming".

Richard Leonard elected new leader of Scottish Labour
In July she revealed she's dating Scottish National Party MSP Jenny Gilruth after meeting on a cross-party trip to the US. Scottish Labour confirmed that Jackie Baillie, the party's economy spokeswoman, would take over as interim leader.

Less than a month after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States, Ridge, a Republican, resigned as governor of Pennsylvania and came to Washington to become then-President George W. Bush's homeland security adviser.

Mr. Ridge was taken to the hospital where he underwent a heart procedure this morning. His wife said first responders worked "heroically" to get her husband to the trauma center at Dell Seton Medical Center at the University of Texas. He left the governorship after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, to join the Bush administration.
