Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton collapsed Monday during a speech on Social Security, the result of a 24-hour flu bug, an aide told The Associated Press.
Clinton was speaking in a warm room in front of 150 people, according to the aide, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Colleen DiPirro, president of the Amherst Chamber of Commerce, told WBEN-AM radio that Clinton told the crowd she was feeling weak and had had a stomach virus.
"She was weak and needed to sit down. She fainted," the aide said.
