Gov. Branstad cancels events, rests after catching cold

Posted: Updated:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Gov. Terry Branstad took the day off Monday to recover from a cold.

Branstad's spokesman Jimmy Centers said the governor caught a cold while on vacation last week. All his public events were canceled Monday so Branstad could take the day off to rest.

Branstad took several days off in January to recover from a case of flu and dehydration that sent him to a hospital after he required assistance at a ribbon-cutting event.

At the time, Branstad's personal physician said in a statement that the hospital conducted tests and ruled out other contributing factors, including cardiac issues, for which he's been previously treated.
