RICHMOND, Va. (AP) _ Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe spent a second night in a Richmond hospital as he recovers from complications stemming from a horse-riding accident in Africa. Spokesman Brian Coy said Tuesday that doctors have drained approximately 1 liter of blood from his chest cavity since he checked into VCU Medical Center on Monday. He says doctors are continuing to drain his chest of fluids. McAuliffe developed the complications after breaking seven ribs around the Christmas holiday in Tanzania during a family trip. He was injured after he was bucked from a horse. Coy described McAuliffe as “full of energy and ready to go back to work,” but said he will heed his doctors’ advice. He said the Democrat met with Cabinet secretaries Tuesday and hopes to be released on Wednesday.
