Yesterday, we were all overjoyed – just thrilled – to hear from our colleague, our dear friend, Senator Ben Ray Luján.

Through his first public video message shared on social media, Ben Ray reiterated yesterday that his recovery is going well, that his office continues to work serving the people of New Mexico, and that he expects – praise God – to make a full recovery.

I’ve been able to get on the phone with him in recent days. He was chipper; sounded like the same Ben Ray we have come to know and love and I can report he is in very good spirits, rearing to go.

From now until his return, all of us in the Senate miss him greatly, we are rooting for him, and we cannot wait to see him walk through the doors of this chamber once again to get back to work.
