Senator Mc Cain Has Surgery to Remove Blood Clot

Republican Sen. John McCain underwent a surgical procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye on Friday and will spend the next week recovering in Arizona - an absence on Capitol Hill that could cause the delay of a key procedural vote on a health care bill.

In Phoenix, Mayo Clinic Hospital doctors said Mr McCain underwent a "minimally invasive" procedure to remove the almost two-inch clot and that the surgery went "very well".

Doctors ordered a week of rest, the statement from McCain's office said.

As for McCain, there were plenty of well wishes for the Senator from Arizona.

The news about McCain came a few hours after President Trump had used his Saturday radio address to again put public pressure on reluctant GOP Senators to support the Republican health care bill.

McCain has expressed reservations about the bill.

Four other more moderate Senators - Portman of Ohio, Murkowski of Alaska, Capito of West Virginia and Heller of Nevada remain undecided about their votes.

This comes on the heels of McConnell cutting the Senate's recess in half to focus on the new bill. Trump administration officials are frantically trying to win over state officials gathered in Providence, Rhode Island, this weekend for a meeting of the National Governors Association.
