TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Former Kansas Sen. Bob Dole has returned to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington.

Dole said in a statement released Saturday that he left the hospital Friday when "everything looked clear." He says he decided to stop by the George Washington University Hospital after a recurrence of a fever. He then returned for further examination Friday evening to Walter Reed, where he remains.

Dole says overall he feels "good." Dole initially was admitted to Walter Reed on Tuesday.

The 87-year-old Dole spent 10 months at Walter Reed last year after suffering pneumonia following knee surgery. He left the facility in mid-November.

Dole was elected to the U.S. House in 1960 and the Senate in 1968. He was the Republican nominee for president in 1996 but lost to Bill Clinton.
