DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Gov. Terry Branstad is getting get-well calls from presidential hopefuls as he recovers from the flu.

Spokesman Jimmy Centers said Wednesday that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker have both called Branstad to wish him well. The governor is recovering from a case of flu and dehydration that sent him to a hospital earlier this week.

Branstad was taken by ambulance to Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines on Monday after he required assistance at a ribbon-cutting event. His public appearances for the week have been cancelled so he can recuperate.

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.
