Republican Steube fell 25 feet to the earth while completing house repairs on his roof, according to Florida Politics.
According to Florida Politics, the Iraq War veteran, former Army infantry officer, and former sheriff of Manatee County was discovered by a staffer of another Florida Republican, Rep. Vern Buchanan. The worker occurred to be completing delivery work in the neighborhood, according to the report.
Steube represents Florida’s 17th congressional district, which encompasses Sarasota, the suburbs of Fort Myers, and a substantial portion of central Florida.
Christian Ziegler, vice chairman of the Florida Republican Party, said in a late Wednesday tweet that Steube was “doing well” in a local hospital.
I just heard that even though Congressman @RepGregSteube is still in the hospital, he is doing well. Big relief to hear.
Our country, state & local community needs him to recover and get back to fighting for us in Congress ASAP.
