(Nexstar Media Wire) — Ron Paul, the former congressman and three-time presidential candidate, is “doing fine” after he was hospitalized following an apparent medical incident during a livestream of his talk show.

During the “Ron Paul Liberty Report,” the 85-year-old was discussing the economy when his speech started to slur.

On Friday afternoon, Paul’s official Twitter account tweeted a message: “I am doing fine. Thank you for your concern.”

His son, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, also tweeted on Friday: “Thank God, Dad is doing well. Thank you for all your prayers today.”

Paul served as a U.S. Representative until 2013 and ran for President in 1988, 2008, and 2012.
