Prasad Srinivasan, who is a doctor and rival Republican gubernatorial candidate. He was discharged from the UConn Medical Center in Farmington on Friday after being treated for dehydration.
At the flag-raising, the Republican candidate for governor told FOX61 the seizure was due to a combination of dehydration and a missed medication dosage.

He said he would take Sunday off, and be back at work and on the campaign trail on Monday.
