Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) remains hospitalized but is in stable condition after undergoing surgery in Phoenix on Sunday to treat an intestinal infection, his office said in a statement Monday.

McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer last year, and has been recovering from the side effects of his cancer treatment at his home in Arizona since December.
