A Kentucky Republican spokesperson said in a statement, “He has been admitted to the hospital where he is receiving treatment.”
There were no additional details provided.
The 81-year-old Republican leader is the longest-serving leader in the Senate. He is well-known for assisting the party in achieving key Republican goals, such as filling the Supreme Court with conservative justices, passing tax cuts implemented during the Trump administration, and frequently thwarting Democrats’ legislative agenda.
In 2019, McConnell broke his shoulder when he fell at his Kentucky house.
His hospitalization this week comes at a time when Democrats hold a 51-49 majority in the Senate, leaving them with a narrow lead.
