Steube had spent the night in the ICU, his office tweeted Thursday morning, noting that he “was knocked about 25 feet down off a ladder while trimming tree limbs.”
Steube’s injuries “are currently under assessment, but not life-threatening at this time,” the earlier statement added. He is making strides and is cheerful.
“This morning, I chatted with @RepGregSteube and his wife, Jen. He is in good spirits, and our entire conference prays for a fast recovery,” the California Republican stated. “I informed him he will serve on the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, and he is anxious to get back to work!”
2018 saw Steube’s initial election to the US House of Representatives. In November, he easily won reelection to a third term as representative of Florida’s reliably Republican 17th Congressional District.
