Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond: Now you tell me Johnny; thanks a lot -- Isakson's health mystery solved
The big mystery behind the illness that put Sen. Johnny Isakson in the hospital and rattled his re-election campaign has been revealed.

Odds are on Republican Isakson to win re-election. But concern over his health was one of the reasons Democratic Georgia Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond, 57, cited in his decision to run against the senator, who's seeking his second term.
Isakson has downplayed discussion about his health ever since.
"My health scare," he told me a few days ago, "was an anomaly."
