    Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has had a stent inserted in his chest after experiencing a heart blockage Thursday evening.

    A statement released by his staff says Patrick was experiencing significant chest pain Thursday and was taken to a hospital.

    The statement says a doctor at Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital performed a number of tests that were negative, but a final one showed a "dangerous heart blockage."

    Patrick later was released from the hospital and will return to work in the coming days.
