House Majority Leader Steve Scalise's cancer is in complete remission and he expects to return to Capitol Hill next week for a second vote to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, his office said Thursday.

The first vote failed earlier this week in part because House Republicans, who are leading the effort to impeach Mayorkas, needed Scalise's vote.

The Louisiana Republican's office said the congressman has "successfully completed his autologous stem cell treatment and has been medically cleared to resume travel." 

The statement also said Scalise is in "complete remission" according to CBS News.

Scalise has multiple myeloma, or blood cancer, which he has said is "very treatable."
