Ross Spano recovering from ‘mild cardiac event’

Republican state Rep. Ross Spano is recovering from a “mild cardiac event” he suffered Sunday.

Spano, a candidate for Congressional District 15, was transported to a nearby hospital after the health complication, which followed a strenuous workout.

“His prognosis is good, and he is expected to make a full and complete recovery,” spokesperson Sandi Poreda wrote in an email to reporters on Monday.

In a statement, Spano said he expects to return to the campaign trail “very soon.” He is up against former state Rep. Neil Combee in the CD 15 Republican primary. The district’s territory covers parts of Lake, Hillsborough and Polk counties.

“I want to thank the first responders, nurses and doctors for the exceptional care and treatment they have provided me and my family,” said Spano. “They are true heroes.”

“Amie and I also deeply appreciate the outpouring of support and prayers we’ve received from the members of this community,” he added. “God has work for me to do, and I’m grateful I have the opportunity to serve Him through my service to my constituents and our country.”
