Tim Johnson '08?

From NBC's Domenico Montanaro

Sen. Tim Johnson (D-SD) may return to the Senate this fall, his wife told the Rapid City Journal. She said she also believes a return to the Senate would speed her husband's recovery, fueling speculation he will likely seek reelection in 2008."When he came home from the hospital, he made giant leaps forward that first week," Barbara Johnson said. "I think the same thing would happen once he gets back in the office and on the (Senate) floor with his colleagues and friends."

Johnson had to have emergency brain surgery in December to correct a potentially fatal condition, which produced bleeding in his brain and stroke-like symptoms.
