Former Vice President Mike Pence received a pacemaker during successful surgery Wednesday. The surgery was deemed necessary after Pence had been dealing with symptoms associated with a slow heart rate.
Prior to his campaign for the vice presidency, Pence disclosed he suffers from asymptomatic left bundle branch block.
The surgery was performed at Inova Fairfax Medical Campus in Virginia.
"The routine surgery was successful, and he is expected to fully recover and return to normal activity in the coming days," Pence's office said.
🔦 The 61-year-old former vice president has largely stayed out of the headlines since leaving office. He recently launched an advocacy group to defend conservative values against the Biden administration called "Advancing American Freedom."
