The wife of Republican U.S. Rep. Ron Paul was in serious but stable condition Monday at a Houston hospital, a spokesman for the lawmaker said. Carol Paul was in the critical care unit at an unidentified hospital, spokesman Jesse Benton said in a statement.

Benton would not disclose why Carol Paul was admitted to the hospita Monday, only saying "she has had several abdominal surgeries."

Paul "appreciates the outpouring of concern and good wishes during this difficult time," Benton said.

A Texas congressman from Lake Jackson, Paul ran for the 2008 GOP presidential nomination. His campaign, which was a sensation on the Internet, drew support not only from Republicans but also from independents and Democrats.
