UNITED STATES  --  The U.S. Senate will delay consideration of the Republican healthcare bill while Senator John McCain recovers from surgery for a blood clot.

McCain is in Arizona after having a blood clot removed from above his left eye. In a statement, McConnell says McCain's surgery went very well and he is in good spirits. Doctors have ordered McCain a week of rest.
