D.C. Council member Marion Barry has been hospitalized in Las Vegas.

Barry is part of a D.C. delegation attending RECon, an international shopping center convention, in Vegas. He was taken to Summerlin Hospital Medical Center.

Sherwood briefly spoke with Barry Monday morning.  He said he was eating dinner at a hotel in Vegas when he felt pain in his leg.

Barry’s Twitter account included a post on Sunday saying he reportedly developed a blood clot while waiting on a plane in Memphis en route to Las Vegas.

“The blood clot has no impact on my physical feeling or my mental ability,” Barry told Sherwood by phone. “I thank God for that.”
