Former Iowa Gov. Branstad suffers heart attack

DES MOINES, Iowa (Reuters) - Former Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad suffered a heart attack after exercising Monday and underwent an operation at a Des Moines hospital, where he was in serious condition, his spokesman said.

Branstad, 54, a four-term Republican who left office in January, 1999, felt dizzy and chest pains while returning to his car after a morning workout.

At the hospital, he underwent a balloon angioplasty, in which a device is threaded through a clogged artery, and a stent was inserted to keep the artery open.

He was in serious condition at Methodist Hospital in Des Moines, but his life was not in danger.

"He felt weak and laid down beside the car. At that point there were several city of Des Moines employees who helped him and called 911," said Branstad's spokesman Eric Woolsen

Since leaving office, Branstad has taught a collegiate course, served on several corporate boards, and consulted with a lobbying firm.
