Santorum cancels events after admitting daughter to hospital

Rick Santorum’s three-year-old daughter Isabella, who suffers from a chromosomal condition called Trisomy 18, was admitted to a Philadelphia hospital Saturday.

In a statement, Santorum spokesman Hogan Gidley said the GOP presidential candidate and former Pennsylvania senator would cancel campaign events on Sunday morning.

“Rick and his wife Karen are admitting their daughter Bella to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia this evening,” Gidley said. “The campaign will cancel Rick’s upcoming Sunday morning Florida campaign schedule. However, Rick intends to return to Florida and resume the campaign schedule as soon as is possible.”

Santorum had been slated to appear on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” as well as make a stop at King Jesus International Ministry in Miami. Santorum has been campaigning in Florida ahead of the state’s primary on Tuesday.
