Olson Hospitalized

WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. Rep. Pete Olson has been released from a hospital after heart surgery that followed a fainting episode at a gym.

The Republican from Sugar Land, Texas, went home Friday morning with a pacemaker that was implanted at George Washington University
Hospital. Hospital spokeswoman Heather Oldham confirmed Olson's
discharge.

Olson spokesman Luke Marchant says the congressman planned to return to Texas on Friday, a day after he fainted while lifting weights at a gym.

Olson said on his Web site that he was diagnosed with bradycardia, a slower-than-normal heartbeat.
