LAS VEGAS -- Las Vegas City Councilman Steve Ross has been taken to the hospital for observation, a family friend said in a statement released Tuesday night.
Ross is being challenged in Tuesday's primary election by two candidates.
In the statement, family friend Steve Redlinger said Ross' wife, Kelli, urged him to go to the hospital for observation. Doctors then advised they would like to run a few follow-up exams. Ross may be in the hospital overnight.
"I want to emphasize that he is doing fine, and doctors are holding him over strictly out of an abundance of caution," Redlinger said.
The family had planned a gathering at the Ross home to await election results, but that was canceled, he said.
Ross is expected to return to work after a couple days of rest, Redlinger said.
