Tillis, 57, was seen on the ground being administered CPR by bystanders at about the two-mile mark in the three-mile race, though Tillis says he was not given CPR. Thom Tillis had a seizure Wednesday morning while running in the annual American Council of Life Capital Challenge race in Washington, a race organizer told CNN. He later posted a video on Twitter saying he was fine and just got overheated. "Thanks for all of your prayers and well wishes". All proceeds generated by the race are donated to charity.

Tillis later tweeted, "I'm doing well".

In the video, Tillis said he was "overheated" and that "no CPR" or "special measures" were needed.

Political leaders immediately offered their prayers for Tillis in tweets, including Gov. Roy Cooper, Sens.

"It's super sad to see and hopefully it's something that folks can focus on with their hydration through the day", said Brent Francese, Runologie co-owner.

He serves on the Senate Armed Services, Judiciary, Veterans Affairs and Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs committees, as well as the Senate's Special Committee on Aging.

Tillis is serving his first term as a USA senator. His victory gave Republicans control of the Senate and capped one of the fastest rises in N.C. politics for a man who, just eight years earlier, was a town commissioner in Cornelius.

He is married to Susan Tillis with two children.
