WASHINGTON — Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is “doing well” and “looking forward to” leaving the hospital and getting back to work, his former political adviser Josh Holmes told NBC News on Friday.

Holmes said he «has been there the last two days» with the Kentucky Republican, adding that the senator has been walking around and bombarding staff with questions.

McConnell, 81, was hospitalized Wednesday and received treatment for a concussion after falling at a private dinner at the Waldorf Astoria in Washington, his office said earlier this week.

McConnell’s Senate office did not provide an official update on his condition Friday. His spokeswoman, David Popp, said in a statement Thursday that McConnell is expected to «remain in hospital for a few days of observation and treatment.»
