Republican gubernatorial candidate, State Sen. Bill Eigel, recently underwent surgery due to a food blockage in his throat. According to his campaign manager Sophia Shore, the incident occurred at home and prompted a visit to the emergency room for treatment. After a successful procedure, Eigel returned home on Sunday and is currently recovering.

Eigel’s absence from legislative duties has caused him to miss out on two days of work, but he is expected to return on Wednesday. His campaign manager expressed gratitude towards the doctors and nurses who provided him with care during his medical emergency. Despite being one of eight candidates vying for the Republican nomination for governor, Eigel remains confident that he will be back fighting against the political establishment soon.

Eigel was elected to the Senate in 2016 and has been known for his criticism of GOP leadership in the Republican majority chamber. He was a founding member of the conservative caucus and played a leading role in the Missouri Freedom Caucus. With Lt. Gov. Mike Kehoe and Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft as his main rivals, Eigel continues to be a formidable contender for the governorship of Missouri.
