Rible recovering from surgery today

Assembly Minority Conference Leader Dave Rible (R-30) today underwent spinal fusion surgery today at Riverview in Red Bank. 

The surgery involved the removal and replacement of existing hardware, including a steel rod, which was inserted during a previous surgery to address multiple herniated discs and nerve damage. A former Wall Township police officer, Rible sustained the injuries when he fell off a cliff while chasing a suspect. 

Rible’s surgery went well and he’s in recovery.

"He’s obviously working very, very hard at it. I mean he’s traveling all over the country as chairman of the [Republican Governors Association] and I think at this point he has as good a chance or better than anybody else. His name is household word all across the country, and I think he would make a great president."
