Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) was scheduled to undergo an "outpatient hernia repair procedure" Monday, spokesman Michael Briggs announced in a press release. 

Sanders, 74, was to be treated at George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C., and was expected to return to his Senate duties Tuesday, Briggs said. The procedure was planned and was not expected to interfere with the senator's presidential campaign, according to the spokesman.
