Johnson's office issues correction to Congresswoman Herseth statement.
From the Pierre Capitol Journal:
Although a local U.S. Representative recently said U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson, D-S.D., could be back in the Senate by this summer, a spokeswoman from his office still will not give a timetable for his recovery.Read the whole story here.
U.S. Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, D-S.D., told a Pierre audience last week that Johnson would be working part time in the Senate by this summer and in outpatient care within the next few weeks.
"I can't confirm or deny, to be honest with you, other than to say that he's doing great," said Johnson's spokeswoman Julianne Fisher. "He continues to do really well. He's in good spirits so that's really fun actually."
Herseth Sandlin said Johnson's daughter Kelsey works in her Washington D.C. office and that is partly how she has been getting updates on his recovery.
