Bernie Sanders Undergoes Surgery at DC Hospital

Sen. Bernie Sanders had an elective outpatient hernia repair at GW Hospital.

Michael Briggs, a spokesperson for the Vermont senator’s presidential campaign, told ABC News that he does not think the procedure will impact Sanders's campaign schedule and that the senator is still planning to travel back to New Hampshire for more events this weekend.

The Sanders campaign told ABC News that the procedure already took place and he is in recovery now, and his wife Jane is with him. The campaign also confirmed that Sanders will return home from the hospital later today.
