EPA Presser

Kentucky's two senators will be spending the rest of their summer recovering from injuries. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell fractured his shoulder after tripping on his home's patio. He was treated and released from the hospital and plans to work from home while he recuperates.

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul announced on Twitter that he underwent surgery to remove part of his lung. His lung was damaged when his neighbor assaulted him in 2017. He says that while he will limit his activities in August, he plans to be back in Washington D.C. when the Senate reconvenes in September.

Unfortunately, I will have to limit my August activities. Part of my lung damaged by the 2017 assault had to be removed by surgery this weekend. The doctors, nurses, & staff at Vanderbilt University Medical Center were great. I should be able to return to the Senate in September
