PHILADELPHIA – John FettermanThe Pennsylvania deputy governor, the Democratic nominee for the Senate seat this fall, said Sunday he had suffered a stroke.
“I had a stroke caused by a blood clot in my heart that was in an A-fib rhythm for a long time. “Fortunately, Giselle noticed the symptoms and took me to the hospital within minutes,” said Fetterman, 52. referring to his wife. “The amazing doctors here were able to quickly and completely remove the thrombus by reversing the stroke. They also monitored my heart.”
The announcement comes two days ago Pennsylvania Senate primary electionswhere polls show Fetterman leading the Democratic primary with his main rival, Malcolm Kenyattan of Conor Lamb.
Fetterman left the campaign on Friday when he said he was not feeling well and went to the hospital. Since then he has canceled many events, so far his campaign has provided little detail. He said at Lancaster General Hospital on Sunday that he was “feeling much better and the doctors were telling me I had no cognitive impairment”.
“I’m on the way to a full recovery,” he said.
“Our campaign is not slowing down at all. We are still on track to win this primaries on Tuesday. We are touring this Senate seat in November,” Fetterman said in a statement. “Thank you for all the support, please come out.” “Vote there.”
Fetterman և his wife, Gisele Feterman, posted a video from the hospital on Twitter.
Lamb responded to the news in a tweet on Sunday, wishing Fetterman “a full and speedy recovery.”
Kenya called Fetterman “an incredible family man”, adding: “I look forward to returning to his campaign soon.”
