WASHINGTON — Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was hospitalized after tripping and falling at a hotel, a spokesman said Wednesday.

“Tonight, Leader McConnell stumbled into a local hotel during a private dinner. He has been admitted to the hospital where he is receiving treatment,” McConnell spokesman David Popp said in a statement.

McConnell, 81, is serving his seventh term in the Senate, after being first elected in 1984. He was Senate Majority Leader until early 2021.

No additional information was immediately available on his condition Wednesday night.

The incident was first reported by punch newsa political news website.

McConnell was first elected to the Senate in 1984 and was reelected in 2020 to serve a seventh term.

He was Senate Majority Leader from 2015 until early 2021, when Democrats assumed a majority after the 2020 election.
