The veteran senator issued a statement moments ago.
“Today, I underwent a procedure called a cardioversion to get my heart rate back in rhythm,” Whelan said. “While I am happy to report that the procedure was a success, my doctors would like to keep me under observation at Shore Medical Center for the next couple of days. My sincere thanks to the staff at Shore and everyone who wished me a speedy recovery.”
PolitickerNJ extends Senator Whelan best wishes for a full recovery.
