Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was reportedly released from an inpatient rehab facility on Saturday, according to the Washington Examiner.
The Kentucky Republican was being treated for a concussion and will now return home to work remotely “for the next few days.”
“I want to sincerely thank everyone for all the kind wishes,” McConnell said in a statement.
“I’m going to follow the advice of my physical therapists and spend the next few days working for Kentuckians and the Republican Conference from home. I’m in frequent touch with my Senate colleagues and my staff. I look forward to returning in person to the Senate soon.”
As RTM previously reported:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) took a fall on Wednesday evening during a dinner event. His office reports the 81-year-old Senator sustained a concussion and will remain hospitalized for “several days.”
McConnell, who has balance issues due to contracting polio as a child, fell at a Senate Leadership Fund dinner. The event was organized to raise funds to elect Republicans to the Senate and held at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in Washington, D.C.
This is not the first time McConnell has fallen and injured himself. Four years ago, he fell at his home in Kentucky and fractured his shoulder.
