FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — A spokesman says Democratic Rep. Gerry Connolly has been released from a hospital after treatment for a blood clot.

Connolly’s office says he is resting at home Monday. The clot was discovered during a routine doctor’s visit.

Connolly’s re-election to the House of Representatives is still undecided. His margin over Republican Keith Fimian is about 0.4 of a percentage point out of more than 225,000 votes cast. That qualifies under Virginia law for a court-supervised recount at state expense.

Fimian has not publicly decided to challenge the count.
