The absence of McCain would mean that a maximum of 49 votes would be available to vote "yes". "On the advice of his doctors, Senator McCain will be recovering in Arizona next week", the statement said.

In Phoenix, Mayo Clinic Hospital doctors said Mr McCain underwent a "minimally invasive" procedure to remove the almost two-inch clot and that the surgery went "very well".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced Saturday that the Senate will delay consideration of the Republican health care bill while Sen.

Two Republican senators - Rand Paul of Kentucky and Susan Collins of ME - have already announced opposition to proceeding to the most version of the health care reconciliation bill.

An analysis and score of the Senate GOP's new healthcare bill from the Congressional Budget Office is expected on Monday.

McCain, 80, had the procedure done at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix following an annual physical.

The other Republican senator from Arizona praised McCain.
