WILLMAR, Minn. (AP) — Democrat-Farm-Labor candidate Larry Rice plans to resume his campaign for Minnesota Senate District 13 next week after suffering a brain hemorrhage at a campaign stop.

Officials say Rice is expected to make a full recovery after the candidate went to the hospital following a voter forum sponsored by the Willmar Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce on Thursday.

The West Central Tribune says Rice was transferred to a Minneapolis hospital to rest and recover.

Rice said in a statement posted on his campaign website Friday that he's feeling much better and looking forward to getting back on the campaign trail.

Rice is running this fall against Sen. Joe Gimse, R-Willmar.
