Concussion: The 81-year-old has to be treated in hospital after a fall in a hotel. Now he is happy to be home again. But he has to take it easy.
Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has been released from a physical therapy facility after suffering a concussion in a fall. The 81-year-old said on Saturday that he was happy to be back home. The Republican fell earlier this month in a hotel in the capital Washington and was then treated in the hospital. He will now work from home for the next few days, said the political veteran.
McConnell is the longest-serving party leader in US Senate history. According to the Chamber of Congress, he has been elected to lead the Republicans nine times since 2006, as majority or minority leader depending on the outcome of each general election and the parties’ Senate seats.
