Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill., has left the Mayo Clinic and is at home in the nation’s capital with his family, an aide said today.
“He’s home with his wife and children and he’s convalescing,” Rick Bryant, his chief of staff in suburban Chicago, told the Chicago Tribune.
Jackson, 47, was treated for bipolar depression at the clinic this summer. He began a medical leave of absence June 10.
Congress returns Monday after a five-week summer recess. Bryant, asked whether Jackson would be in attendance, said: “I am hopeful that he’ll be back on the job on Monday.”
