NBC New York reports: ‘De Blasio cleared the school gym to figure out what is wrong with Nadler who appeared alert and conscious, but pale. An ambulance was called and was standing by. In a statement, Nadler’s spokesperson said: “He is okay. Seems to have been dehydrated and it was very warm in the room. He is now responsive and receiving a check-up.’

Appreciate everyone's concern. Was very warm in the room this morning, was obviously dehydrated and felt a bit ill. Glad to receive fluids and am feeling much better. Thank you for your thoughts.— (((Rep. Nadler))) (@RepJerryNadler) May 24, 2019
