Obama is suspending his campaign to visit his ailing grandmother’s bedside in Hawaii.
A senior aid to Obama told ABC News that recently Madelyn Dunham had become ill and her “health has deteriorated to the point where her situation is very serious.”
Obama’s grandmother and grandfather helped to raise him, along with his mother.
HAN initially heard the campaign suspension would be for two days beginning Thursday, but Obama’s scheduled departure for Hawaii more than likely depends on his grandmother’s condition.
This is a truly sad turn of events. No word yet on the cause of her illness.
We wish Obama and his family well.
