WASHINGTON — Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, Announced on Twitter that he will return to work in person next week after being hospitalized for a concussion in March.
“I look forward to returning to the Senate on Monday,” McConnell, 81, wrote Thursday on Twitter. «We have big issues to address and big fights to win for Kentuckians and the American people.»
McConnell had been working remotely from home after his discharge from an inpatient physical rehabilitation center on March 25.
McConnell tripped and fell on March 8 at a dinner in Washington for the Senate Leadership Fund, a GOP super PAC. He spent several days in the hospital and more than a week in an inpatient physical rehabilitation center being treated for a concussion and a minor rib fracture, his office said.
Sen. John Fetterman, D-Pa., is also expected to return to work in person next week, while Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., remains absent due to a shingles diagnosis and hospitalization. Feinstein began receiving requests to resign from two House Democrats on Wednesday due to her long absence.
McConnell was chosen one to the Senate in 1984 and has served as Senate Majority Leader.
