The senator from Utah was previously spotted on Capitol Hill with a black eye and stitches on his face, above his eye and his mouth.
Republican Senator Mitt Romney told the press on Monday that he had to go to hospital over the weekend, and is now recovering after he “took a fall” while in Boston visiting his son and grandchildren.
“Oh my goodness. I went to CPAC. That was a problem”, the politician joked, when asked about how he got his injury, adding that he is “feeling better” now.
