Rev. Jackson says son going to Mayo for checkup

Posted: Updated:

The Rev. Jesse Jackson says his congressman son will return to Minnesota's Mayo Clinic for a checkup.

The elder Jackson told The Associated Press on Sunday that doctors will determine whether 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.

The younger Jackson has given no indication of when he'll return to work but released a robocall to voters asking for patience.

A Mayo spokeswoman says Jackson isn't a current patient and she couldn't confirm whether he plans to check into the clinic.

The congressman's spokesmen didn't immediately return messages.

The elder Jackson wouldn't say when the checkup was. He says his son wants to work, but it's up to his doctors.
