Now this is an October surprise

Ohio Rep. John Boccieri (D) had to leave from a rally with Bill Clinton because his wife went into labor.

The AP:

CANTON, Ohio -- Alliance Democrat Rep. John Boccieri got a call he had been waiting for Saturday afternoon, and all of a sudden his last-minute campaigning for re-election came to a halt. Boccieri was informed his wife, Stacey, had gone into labor. He dashed off the stage of a rally being held for himself and other Democrats and headed off to be with his wife.

His quick exit caused former President Bill Clinton -- the guest of the honor at the rally -- to exclaim: "Another Democrat!"
