NEWARK, Delaware — Vice President Joe Biden's son was being treated at a Delaware hospital, the White House said Tuesday, though it did not provide information about what might be wrong.

Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden was awake and alert and communicating with his parents and wife, who were with him at Christiana Hospital in Newark, where a state trooper was stationed at the main entrance.

Jason Miller, a spokesman for Beau Biden, said he was admitted to the hospital Tuesday morning.

The 41-year-old had considered running for the Senate seat his father held before becoming vice president, but decided against it. He became attorney general in 2007 and previously served at the US Justice Department.

In 2009, the younger Biden returned from a yearlong deployment to Iraq with his Army National Guard unit. He was a captain and military lawyer in the 261st Theater Tactical Signal Brigade.
