Senator John Warner is out of the hosptial after undergoing a medical procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat.
The 80-year-old Republican said Friday that he was back in his office and felt fine. He announced in August that he would not seek a sixth term next year.
Warner said he'd had mild occurrences of atrial fibrillation over the years, but his doctors told him not to worry about it. He said it did not figure into his decision to retire. Warner said the latest episode of arrhythmia came after a long and busy day Monday when he had worked late into the night.
The next morning, he said, "it just sort of kicked up on me a little bit."
