New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio was announcing details on a school zone program when Nadler appeared to slump over in his seat.
At one point– De Blasio offered the congressman water. The event was at a crowded public school and the room was very warm.
According to Nadler’s aide– the New York democrat “is doing okay.”
He reports Nadler– quote– “seems to have been dehydrated.”
