Gov. Bill Clements suffered a slight stroke Tuesday that temporarily blurred his vision but otherwise caused no ill effects, his press secretary said.

Clements, 71, admitted himself to Seton Medical Center, where he was in good condition and under the care of a neurologist and a cardiologist, said Clements spokesman Reggie Bashur.Bashur said Clements had almost fully recovered by Tuesday night but would remain in the hospital two or three days for tests.

"He's walking around and smiling," Bashur said.

Bashur said it was not clear when Clements suffered the stroke, which the spokesman described as "slight."
