Allen West, a Republican candidate for Texas governor, announced Saturday that he's "probably going to be admitted to the hospital" after being diagnosed with COVID-19 pneumonia.
The big picture: He and his wife, Angela West, both tested positive for the virus, according to statements posted to the former Texas GOP chair's Twitter account.
He wasn't vaccinated against the coronavirus, but Angela West was.
Allen West described his condition as "not serious," but noted: "There’s a concern about my oxygen saturation levels, which are at 89 and they should be at 95.".
He announced hours earlier he was canceling in-person events until receiving the "all clear.".
