Lowey recovering


U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.), a senior Jewish congresswoman, is recovering from a “minor coronary incident.”

Lowey, who heads the powerful foreign operations subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives Appropriations Committee, collapsed last Saturday after delivering a speech at a White Plains, N.Y. rally for a prominent constituent: presidential candidate U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Lowey, who represents Westchester County, has been released from a hospital and expects to return to work within two weeks, a spokesman told Newsday.
