Jimmie Lou Fisher Returns Home After Stroke

MAY 3, 2006 - Posted at 7:35 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Former state treasurer Jimmie Lou Fisher is back home from the hospital and is expected to fully recover from a stroke she suffered last month.  That's according to a spokesman for Representative Dustin McDaniel of Jonesboro, a Democrat running for attorney general and a colleague of Fisher's.

The spokesman said Fisher was released from Baptist Health Medical Center yesterday.  Fisher suffered a mild stroke April 12 and was hospitalized at St. Vincent Infirmary Medical Center before she was transferred to Baptist Health for rehabilitation.

After serving as state treasurer for 20 years, the Paragould native ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2002 as the Democratic nominee against Republican incumbent Mike Huckabee.  This year, she has been serving as chairwoman for McDaniel's attorney general campaign.
