Former Ohio Congressman Charlie Wilson is hospitalized in Florida after suffering a stroke last week and is reportedly in a medically induced coma.

A statement released by Wilson's family indicated that he suffered a brain aneurysm last Friday while vacationing in the Orlando area.  

Wilson served two terms as a Democratic congressman before losing a re-election bid in 2010 to Republican Bill Johnson.  
 
Wilson lost again to Johnson in 2012 in a bid to reclaim his congressional seat.
