    In this Jan. 14, 2015 file photo, Outgoing Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown greets members of the House of Delegates in Annapolis, Md., the first day of the 2015 legislative session. Eighteen months after he surprisingly lost his bid for the state's highest office, a safely Democratic seat in Congress will be no easy consolation prize for Brown, who is locked in a tough three-way battle.

    A congressman had a minor stroke within a few hours of leaving the funeral of a county executive in Maryland.

    Rep. Anthony G. Brown (D-Md.) is expected to make a full recovery, spokesman Matt Verghese said.

    His office said in a statement that Brown had experienced dizziness and nausea shortly after returning home from the funeral of Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. His wife, Karmen Walker Brown, called 911.

    The first-term-congress man was taken to University of Maryland Prince George's Hospital Center, admitted for two nights and released Sunday.

    The 56-year-old is recovering at home and has not set a definite date for his return to Capitol Hill.

    "The Congressman is in good spirits, staying active and is recuperating at home," Verghese said in a statement. "He spoke to his staff this afternoon, and is already eager to return to Washington."

    Brown was elected to Congress in 2016 after winning a six-way Democratic primary.
