Senator Johnson in Critical Condition After Surgery

Last night, Senator Tim Johnson (D-SD) underwent brain surgery after he "was found to have had an intracerebral bleed caused by a congenital arteriovenous malformation," according to Adm. John Eisold, attending physician of the U.S. Capitol. His long-term prognosis remains unknown at this time.

If Johnson is to be replaced, the Republican governor of South Dakota will appoint his replacement until a run-off election.
