A spokeswoman at Regions Hospital says state Sen. Gary Kubly, DFL-Granite Falls, remains in critical condition after being taken to the St. Paul hospital earlier today.

DFL Senate Caucus spokesman Amos Briggs says Kubly had a medical crisis this morning and is at Regions Hospital. Briggs says Kubly’s family is asking for the public’s prayers.

Kubly, a retired Lutheran pastor, announced in late January last year he’d been diagnosed with ALS, the degenerative neuromuscular condition also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Kubly’s legislative career started with his election to the House in 1996 and was elected to the Senate in 2002. He has said he doesn’t plan to run for re-election in 2012.
