Consultant Lauren Boebert, a far-right ally of former President Donald J. Trump from Colorado who’s a part of the razor-thin Republican majority within the Home, had surgical procedure on Tuesday to take away an acute blood clot in her leg, her campaign said.

Ms. Boebert, 37, who’s operating for re-election this yr, was admitted to UCHealth Medical Middle of the Rockies in Loveland, Colo., on Monday after experiencing extreme swelling in her higher left leg, in keeping with her marketing campaign. It mentioned that she was anticipated to make a full restoration.

The marketing campaign disclosed that docs recognized Ms. Boebert with Might-Thurner syndrome, which the Cleveland Clinic describes as a situation wherein a serious artery within the leg compresses a serious vein, disrupting blood circulate.

A stent was inserted throughout the surgical procedure, the marketing campaign mentioned.

Ms. Boebert, who’s a part of a bunch of right-wing provocateurs within the Home that features Representatives Matt Gaetz of Florida and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, introduced in December that she would run in a extra conservative district than the one she now represents.

Throughout the midterm elections in 2022, she narrowly staved off a problem from Adam Frisch, a Democratic businessman and former Aspen metropolis councilman, who’s operating once more in her present district.

A sequence of exits from the Home Republican caucus later this month will imply G.O.P. lawmakers can afford only a single defection from party-line votes when all members are current.
