Former U.S. Rep. John Dingell suffered a heart attack and is in a Detroit-area hospital. He is the longest-serving member of the House or Senate in U.S. history.
U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell says her husband is "alert and in good spirits, cracking jokes as usual." She says the 92-year-old had a heart attack early Monday.
Debbie Dingell says: "We'll know more later."
John Dingell, a Democrat, was in office for nearly 60 years. He didn't run for re-election in 2014, the same year that his wife was elected to his 12th District seat in southeastern Michigan.
