Democratic Senate candidate and Lt. Gov. John Fetterman released from hospital
Braddock (KDKA) is a Pennsylvania lieutenant governor and now a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate, John Fetterman, on his way home from hospital.
In a video posted on social media from his wife Giselle, Fetterman raised his thumb to the camera.
Fetterman was hospitalized after he suffered a stroke.
“I feel fine, but on the orders of my doctor and Giselle, I will continue to rest and recover,” he told the Associated Press. “Later this week I will have my next visit to my doctors at Penn Medicine Lancaster General Hospital. I’m going to rest and get out 100% to quickly turn that seat blue.”
In the video, he said he was feeling unwell and was hospitalized at his wife’s urging.
There he learned that he had a stroke caused by a clot in his heart.
Fetterman had a pacemaker implanted, and he is expected to be completely cured.
In November this year, he will fight against Dr. Mehmet Oz or Dave McCormick to replace retired U.S. Senator Pat Toomey.
