Republican U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell’s doctor, Brian Monahan, cleared McConnell to continue business as usual after the senator froze while speaking at the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday.
This was the second incident in about a month. The first incident was on July 26 at a Washington press conference.
“I have consulted with Leader McConnell and conferred with his neurology team. After evaluating yesterday’s incident, I have informed Leader McConnell that he is medically clear to continue with his schedule as planned. Occasional lightheadedness is not uncommon in concussion recovery and can also be expected as a result of dehydration,” Monahan said in a note.
