That's forced McConnell to step back twice from anticipated votes and to revise his bill in hopes of mollifying unhappy moderates and conservatives.
President Donald Trump is hailing Sen. The senator had been recuperating from surgery in Arizona. It was not immediately clear when he would return to Washington. John McCain will return to the Senate as Republicans prepare to vote on Obamacare repeal and replacement. However, exactly what legislation lawmakers would be debating remained unclear to many of them late Monday.
Trump, meanwhile, kept up the pressure with a spray of tweets. "And you know, I made an extremely good showing against Senator McCain against all odds". Trump also quipped that he would fire Price if he did not round up enough votes.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., postponed an earlier vote on the health care bill due to McCain's absence from Washington for surgery to remove a blood clot near his eye.
McCain's absence put the future of the GOP effort to pass a new health care bill in jeopardy because the party can not afford to lose votes.

Speaking of Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, an Eagle Scout who was on stage with him, Trump said, "Hopefully he's going to get the votes tomorrow to start our path toward killing this terrible thing known as Obamacare that's really hurting us". Republicans can only lose two votes for a majority without Democrats, and Sen.
Still, the possibility of him leaving was raised in Ward's interview. She's one of a dozen or so senators who have not committed to even voting for the motion to proceed.
Throughout Monday, Senate Republicans offered conflicting statements about McCain appearing for the health-care vote.
"I want to get it on the record that never, never did I say or was the intent behind what I had to say that John McCain should step down and I should take his seat", she said.
