U.S. Rep. Horsford Undergoes Cardiac Surgical Procedure
U.S. Rep. Steven Horsford

LAS VEGAS -- U.S. Rep. Steven Horsford had non-elective "cardiac surgical procedure" Monday to address a hereditary condition, his office said in a statement.

Calling the procedure "successful," the decision to operate was made during a routine annual physical examination. It is unclear if he had heart surgery or another procedure.

Horsford's doctors expect a full recovery, the statement said. He will be recovering for the next few weeks.

Horsford, 40, represents Nevada's Congressional District 4.

In a statement, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval said, "This afternoon, Kathleen and I expressed our thoughts and prayers to Congressman Horsford and his family. Congressman Horsford has been a vocal supporter of Nevada and his constituents and we extend our sincerest wishes for a full recovery."

During Horsford's recovery, he will be briefed on Congressional actions and his district. His staff will continue to serve his constituents.
