"My hip surgery today to repair a fracture was very successful. On my way to a full recovery," he tweeted. He had sustained an injury in an unspecified incident.

The 89-year-old senator is the upper chamber's longest serving Republican, having first assumed office in 1981. He won reelection to an eighth term in November 2022, easily defeating his Democratic challenger.
