WASHINGTON — Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is “doing well” and “eager” to leave the hospital and return to work, his longtime political adviser Josh Holmes told NBC News on Friday.
Holmes said he’s “been there the last two days” with the Kentucky Republican, and added that the senator has been walking around and peppering staff with questions.
McConnell, 81, was hospitalized Wednesday and treated for a concussion after he fell at a private dinner at the Waldorf Astoria in Washington, his office said earlier this week.
