Democratic state Rep. Bob Bibb has triple bypass

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- State Rep. Bob Bibb is home recovering after undergoing heart surgery last week.

House Democratic Caucus spokesman Addison Pate says Bibb's doctors expect a quick recovery, and that the 51-year-old freshman lawmaker from Springfield will resume campaigning for re-election soon.

Pate says Bibb had a triple bypass performed after a routine checkup on Tuesday revealed blockage to his heart.

Bibb faces Republican Joshua Evans in race for the House District 66 seat that represents Robertson County.
