U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., has been admitted to George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday night after falling in his apartment and suffering four fractured ribs. “He is in pain but resting and doing well. Senator Isakson looks forward to fully recovering and getting back to work for Georgians,” says spokeswoman Amanda Maddox.
Isakson, 74, has represented Georgia in the U.S. Senate since 2005. Despite a Parkinson’s Disease diagnosis in 2015, Isakson has maintained a brisk schedule and won re-election in 2016 to a third term.
Gov. Brian Kemp posted this comment following news of Isakson’s fall: “The Kemp Family asks Georgians across our great state to join them in praying for Senator Isakson’s swift recovery.”
