Republican Senate Candidate Jason Lewis has been discharged from the hospital after he was rushed into emergency surgery on Monday.
According to a release from his campaign, Lewis was discharged from Fairview Range Medical Center in Hibbing on Wednesday afternoon. The former Congressman was rushed to the hospital on Monday for suffering “severe abdominal pain.”
After doctors determined he was suffering from a severe hernia that could be life-threatening if not immediately treated, Lewis was rushed into surgery.
Lewis will return to his home in Woodbury to recover and catch up on work, according to a statement. Lewis previously had to put campaigning on hold when he had to quarantine twice due to possible exposure to COVID-19.
“While I still need a little time to fully recover, I will be working as hard as I am able to over these next six days to ensure Minnesota finally gets a senator who prioritizes economic growth and good paying jobs, funding the police, and protecting Minnesotans from the radical left's unconstitutional proposals like gun confiscation and packing the Supreme Court,” Lewis said in a statement.”
Lewis is running against incumbent Democrat Sen. Tina Smith on Nov. 3.
