September 06, 2003|From Associated Press

OLYMPIA, Wash. — The state's attorney general, who is also the front-running Democratic candidate for governor, was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a mastectomy, a spokesman said Friday.

Christine Gregoire, 56, underwent surgery Thursday and was released from a hospital Friday, said attorney general spokesman Fred Olson.

A lump was found in Gregoire's left breast during a recent mammogram and the breast was removed by surgeons.

Gregoire will spend a week at home recovering but plans to continue as attorney general and candidate, Olson said.
