Kentucky surgeons operate on Mitch McConnell’s broken shoulder
Aug. 16 (UPI) — Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell successfully underwent surgery to repair a fractured shoulder he broke at his Kentucky home this month, his office said Friday.
“The surgery was performed without incident, and the [GOP] leader is grateful to the surgical team for their skill,” spokesman David Popp said in a statement Friday.
The 77-year-old six-term senator is recuperating in Kentucky amid criticisms he hasn’t reconvened the upper chamber to take up gun reform legislation. Congress will be on summer recess until Sept. 9.
