Ex-presidential Nominee George McGovern in Hospice

Former Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern has moved into hospice care near his home in South Dakota.

His daughter told The Associated Press on Monday that the longtime South Dakota senator is "coming to the end of his life." Ann McGovern declined to elaborate, but noted her 90-year-old father's recent health problems.

She says he's moved in the Dougherty Hospice House in Sioux Falls.

George McGovern lost to President Richard Nixon in a historic landslide in 1972. Most of his work in recent years has focused on world hunger.

Last October, he was treated for exhaustion after a lecture tour. Two months later, he fell and hit his head just before a scheduled interview for a C-SPAN program about failed presidential candidates who've had a lasting impact on American politics.
