South Dakota: SD's junior Senator John Thune met with Tim Johnson's wife and offered a positive report:
Sen. John Thune said today that after talking with Sen. Tim Johnson's wife, he can report that Johnson, his Democratic colleague from South Dakota, is making progress after last week's brain surgery. ...Sounds positive. Hopefully there will be more substantive recovery news at the start of the new year.
"My expectation is that Tim's going to recover and be back in the saddle; we'll be working together like we have before," Thune told reporters in a telephone news conference. ...
Thune said he did not see Sen. Johnson but that Barb Johnson was upbeat even after the long hours she has put in at the hospital.
"The family is in very good spirits," Thune said. "Barb was very encouraged by the progress that Tim's making."
