The first-term Senator and former Agriculture secretary under President George W. Bush expects to return to work on March 16.“I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome of the surgery and I am working my way back to a full recovery,— Johanns said in a statement. “My staff is doing a great job of keeping me up to date and I’m anxious to rejoin them and my colleagues to work on the many important matters facing our state and nation.”
