Bernie Sanders at home After Release From the Hospital

Share

Bernie Sanders is at home after he released from a hospital in Las Vegas on Friday, three days after feeling chest pains and having two stents inserted for artery blockage.

The plane carrying the 78-year-old senator arrived in Vermont just before 6 p.m. Saturday, and Sanders is at home, one day after he was released from a hospital.

As he left the airport he told reporters “I’m feeling great, thank you. “He was then driven home in a motorcade where he was welcomed by family at the front door.

Sanders was attending a campaign event on Tuesday when he experienced chest discomfort and was taken to a hospital.

Sanders’ campaign released a statement from his doctors that said two stents were inserted to open up a blocked artery in his heart. The doctors said the rest of his stay was “uneventful with good expected progress.”

Sanders’ campaign released a statement from his doctors that said two stents were inserted to open up a blocked artery in his heart. The doctors said the rest of his stay was “uneventful with good expected progress.”

The 78-year-old presidential candidate was hospitalized on Wednesday to receive stent insertions because he experienced chest discomfort. His hospitalization prompted the campaign to cancel all events until further notice and a $1.3 million TV ad that was set to air in Iowa.

The campaign confirmed on Friday the senator suffered a “myocardial infarction,” also known as a heart attack.

Although Sanders is at home resting and recovering after his hospitalization, his health is still an important issue in the presidential election, and as we said, Bernie Sanders’ Heart Condition could be an obstacle for him in the 2020 election.

Sanders’ medical condition has led to the age of debate over presidential candidates. Three Democratic pioneers, including Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden, and Senator Elizabeth Warren are more than 70 years old.

The campaign has stated Sanders, 78, will take part in the next Democratic debate Oct. 15 in Ohio, but has not declared if he will return to the campaign trail before then.

Rep. Ro Khanna, a Sanders campaign co-chair, traveled to Iowa on Friday and Saturday in Sanders’s stead, while another co-chair, Nina Turner, campaigned for Sanders in South Carolina.

For now, policy announcements like the campaign finance plan allow Sanders to stay in the news while he’s still resting at home.

The plan would upend the popular system for funding elections, something several of his fellow candidates have also proposed.

Sanders has sworn off big-dollar fundraisers and corporate PAC money and relied entirely on small-dollar donations instead.
