U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made the following statement regarding U.S. Sen. John McCain’s recovery from surgery:
“Elaine and I, along with the entire Senate family, wish John the very best and wish him a speedy recovery. There are few people tougher than my friend John McCain, and I know he’ll be back with us soon. Our thoughts are with Cindy and his family, his staff, and the people of Arizona.
“While John is recovering, the Senate will continue our work on legislative items and nominations, and will defer consideration of the Better Care Act.”
