Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was hospitalized on Sunday after a fall at his home. Reports indicate that the GOP Senator was released after being treated for a fractured shoulder.

According to The Daily Caller:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell fell outside his home and fractured his shoulder in Louisville, Kentucky, Sunday.

“This morning, Leader McConnell tripped at home on his outside patio and suffered a fractured shoulder. He has been treated, released, and is working from home in Louisville,” McConnell spokesman David Popp said in a statement according to The Washington Post.

McConnell, 77, was briefly hospitalized after the fall. The Republican traveled to Kentucky on Friday to spend the roughly five-week recess in his home state. He was spotted Saturday at the annual Fancy Farm picnic, a political rally that features speakers from both parties, reported WLKY. 

The senator is seeking his seventh term in the Senate and faces a challenge from Democrat Amy McGrath, a former Kentucky congressional candidate and Marine fighter pilot.

McConnell is now having to mend a fractured shoulder as he absorbs attacks from the leftover mass shootings. Critics claim McConnell has done nothing in response to these tragedies.
