The surprise procedure was a difficult moment for the congressman who has led the state’s 6th District since 2019. The election occurred after then-Rep. Luke Messer left the seat open to run for the Senate.
The heart surgery also followed the House select committee’s investigation of Jan. 6 that noted that he, along with his brother, were only 40 feet away from those who entered the Capitol Building.
