Congressman Greg Pence, brother to former Vice President Mike Pence, said on Monday that he is currently recovering from a heart procedure after experiencing chest pain.
The Daily Wire reports:
“Congressman Greg Pence is recovering from a heart procedure over the weekend after experiencing minor chest discomfort. Congressman Pence is expected to make a full recovery from home with his wife Denise and family,” Pence’s office said.
“The Pence family is grateful to the entire Columbus Regional Hospital team for their exceptional care and professionalism,” it added.
“‘I want to take this opportunity to remind everyone to always seek medical attention when you aren’t feeling well. Cardiac care can’t wait. Doing nothing is simply not an option. I am extremely thankful to the doctors, nurses and staff at Columbus Regional Hospital for their proactive attention to keep my heart healthy,’” Pence stated.
Pence has served as Indiana’s congressman of the 6th District since 2019.
His procedure came just days after the House select committee investigating the events of January 6 focused on then-President Trump’s pressure against Mike Pence to reject the results of the 2020 election. During a Thursday hearing, the panel said Pence was only about 40 feet away from those who entered the Capitol Building.
