Legislator Ted B. Morton hospitalized

Erie County Legislator Ted B. Morton remained in St. Joseph’s Hospital on Thursday, where he was taken Wednesday upon falling ill at his home, according to a spokesman for the Legislature’s Republican-aligned majority caucus.

Steven Whipple, majority caucus chief of staff, said Morton was admitted to the intensive care unit at the hospital.

A Republican from Depew, Morton, 55, is in the second year of his first term on the Legislature. Last month, he announced his candidacy for a second two-year term.
