AUSTIN – Upon hearing of the news of Congressman Kenny Marchant’s double-bypass heart surgery, Republican Party of Texas Chairman Steve Munisteri said: “Our best wishes go out to Congressman Marchant and family for the Congressman’s full and speedy recovery. It is my understanding that he is doing very well following the surgery, and that he expects to be back in Washington when the new Congress is sworn in this January.”

“Congressman, on behalf of the RPT – we hope you will have a quiet and restful convalescence during this holiday season, and we look forward to seeing you back on the House floor in Washington, fighting Pelosi and Obama in January!”
