George Wallace's Condition Improves

MONTGOMERY, Alabama (CNN) -- Former Alabama Gov. George Wallace's condition has been upgraded from serious to fair, and the former presidential candidate may be released from a Montgomery hospital by the end of the weekend, according to a nursing supervisor.

Wallace, 78, is being treated for a chronic respiratory condition at Jackson Hospital. The four-term governor was admitted to the hospital Wednesday, the second time in two months he has been hospitalized.

Paralyzed from the waist down in a 1972 assassination attempt and suffering from Parkinson's disease, Wallace has been beset with a variety of infections and illnesses over the years. He is legally deaf and has difficulty speaking.

Wallace was a third-party presidential candidate in 1968 and was running for the Democratic nomination in 1972 when he was shot.
