John Dingell released from hospital

Former Rep. John Dingell, D-Michigan, announced, "I'm out of here," on Twitter, added a thank you for his care and flashed a thumbs-up sign as he left the George Washington University Hospital Tuesday. He had been hospitalized since mid-December, after he broke his hip.

The 88-year-old Dingell is the longest-serving member of Congress and retired at the end of the 113th session. His wife, Debbie Dingell, was elected to the seat he vacated.
