GOP Senator Says He May Need Part Of His Finger Amputated


Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) announced on Wednesday that he might have a part of a finger amputated after suffering a significant injury while doing yardwork this past weekend.

The senator told Fargo radio station KFGO that he was working within the backyard of his home in Bismarck when a big boulder rolled over his right hand.

The injury was serious enough to require immediate surgery.

“I proceed to stay in North Dakota near medical care as there’s a high risk of infection and the possible need for amputation,” Cramer said in an announcement. “I’m alert and in good spirits.”

He plans to return to Washington, D.C. after the Fourth of July holiday.

Although most politicians specialise in pressing the flesh, the character of the injury means Cramer will likely be, as he put within the statement below, “doling out plenty of left-handed fist bumps.”

Last week, he suggested that the upcoming midterm elections are galvanizing Republican voters greater than efforts to maintain guns away from the mentally sick, within the wake of recent mass shootings.

“I feel we’re more inquisitive about the red wave than we’re in red flags, quite truthfully, as Republicans, and we’ve got a fairly good opportunity to try this,” Cramer told reporters.
