CHICAGO (AP) — The Rev. Jesse Jackson says his congressman son will head back to Minnesota's Mayo Clinic for a checkup.
The elder Jackson told The Associated Press on Sunday that doctors will determine if the congressman needs to stay longer. The younger Jackson left the clinic in September after seeking treatment for bipolar disorder. He first took medical leave in June.
Jackson has given no indication of when he'll return to work but has released a robocall to voters asking for patience.
A Mayo spokeswoman says Jackson isn't a current patient and couldn't confirm whether he has plans to check into the clinic.
Messages for Jackson's spokesmen weren't immediately returned.
The elder Jackson wouldn't say when his son's checkup was. He says Jackson wants to work, but only doctors can determine that.
