U.S. Sen. John Boozman, R-Ark., is back in Washington, D.C., according to a tweet from his account.
In his tweet, he said, “It’s great to be back at work in Washington. Thank you for your prayers, support & encouragement.”
Not only is Boozman back in Washington, D.C., he also plans to seek reelection in 2016, according to an official in Boozman’s office.
Grant Hodges, a former Boozman intern, told 5NEWS recently that Boozman would be heading back to Washington, D.C., on June 5.
Boozman recently phoned Hodges, an intern in 2010, to congratulate him on his victory last month in a state House primary election, Hodges said.
Hodges defeated fellow Republican Damon Wallace on May 20 to win the GOP nomination in House District 96. Hodges faces Democrat Tom McClure and Libertarian Michael Kalagias in the Nov. 4 general election.
During their phone conversation, Boozman said he would return to Washington, D.C., on June 5, Hodges said.
After undergoing emergency heart surgery on April 21 in Rogers, Boozman has been recovering in Arkansas, Hodges said.
Boozman said he was “feeling great,” according to a tweet from Hodges on June 3.
