Doc: Hillary "Fit" To Be President

WASHINGTON (AP) Hillary Rodham Clinton's physician describes the Democratic presidential candidate as in "excellent physical condition and fit to serve as president of the United States.''

The Clinton campaign released a letter from her doctor on Friday. It addresses Clinton's health in 2012, when she sustained a concussion after fainting _ a result of a stomach virus and dehydration. Testing the following year showed "complete resolution'' of the concussion's effects, including double vision.

During the course of her treatment, Clinton was also found to have a blood clot and was given medication to dissolve it. She's remains on the treatment as a precaution.

Clinton is the first 2016 presidential candidate to release her health records. Her campaign also released her tax returns since 2007.
