USA Today reports:
Justice Department spokeswoman Gina Talamona said there was no evidence the 67-year-old attorney general had suffered a stroke or heart problem after being stricken in the midst of a speech.
“He is doing well,” Talamona said. “He’s very alert. It appears to be a fainting spell.”

The incident did not require a transfer of authority to the deputy attorney general, Talamona said.
“The person who was in charge yesterday is in charge today,” she said.
