Peter Schorsch of Florida Politics earlier reported that Steube had fallen from the roof of his Sarasota-area home.

Steube, a Republican, was performing home maintenance on his roof when he fell 25 feet to the ground, according to Florida Politics.

The Iraq War veteran, former Army infantry officer and former sheriff of Manatee County was found by a staffer of another Florida Republican, Rep. Vern Buchanan, according to Florida Politics. The staffer happened to be performing delivery work in the neighborhood, according to the report.

Steube represents Florida’s 17th congressional district, which includes Sarasota and some suburbs of Fort Myers in the southwestern part of the state as well as a large swath of central Florida.

In a Twitter post published late Wednesday, Florida Republican Party Vice Chairman Christian Ziegler indicated that Steube was “doing well” in an area hospital.
