  • Lt. Gov. Sanchez recovers from surgery

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Lt. Gov. John Sanchez is recovering from surgery to remove his gall bladder.

    A spokesman for Sanchez said Thursday the elective surgery was performed Monday at an Albuquerque hospital and the lieutenant governor was sent home the next day. He's been working at home and plans to return to his office next week.

    Spokesman Mark Van Dyke said the lieutenant governor experienced pain in his abdomen Sunday night. It was decided that his gall bladder should be removed because it could cause more problems in the future.

    Sanchez, 48, was elected in November. He was the Republican gubernatorial nominee in 2002, but lost to Democrat Bill Richardson in the general election.
