State Rep. Elliott Naishtat was hospitalized following a bicycling accident in Minnesota, but fear not — the progressive champion is on the mend and in good spirits.

During the annual bike ride at the National Conference of State Legislators held this year in Minnesota, Naishtat hit a guard rail hard and punctured his calf which resulted in severe swelling and internal bleeding.

Thankfully Naishtat is expected to make a full recovery and be back here in Austin shortly.

Sign our card. We'll deliver it to Representative Naishtat when he's back in Austin along with a bag of mini-carrots.
