DETROIT - Rep. John Conyers is in the hospital for a stress-related illness, according to WXYZ.

Our ABC affiliate in Detroit spoke to Sam Riddle, the family's spokesperson, this morning outside the Conyers home.

"The Congressman is resting comfortably in an area hospital," Riddle told reporters. "He's doing OK -- as well as can be expected for a gentleman that's approaching 90 years of age."

Riddle said that Monica, Conyers' wife, is by his side at the hospital.
