DETROIT (WKZO) -- Congressman John Dingell is expected to spend the night in the hospital after undergoing a minimally invasive procedure at Henry Ford Hospital. Reportedly the 87-year-old Dingell developed atrial fibrillation, an abnormal heart rhythm, and the procedure is intended to correct the problem.

Dingell, the longest serving member of Congress, announced last month that he will not seek a 30th term in office. While his age and health are presumed to be factors contributing to his decision, Dingell has cited partisan gridlock as the reason for his departure.

Dingell's wife, Debbie, hopes to take over her husband's seat in Congress.
