Amid a swirl of good news and positive coverage of his campaign, 78-year-old presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was hospitalized Tuesday and underwent a procedure for an artery blockage.
According to CNBC, Sanders’s campaign manager Jeff Weaver says the Vermont senator had “experienced some chest discomfort” during a Tuesday event, and that doctors discovered a “blockage in one artery.” Sanders reportedly had two stents inserted.
“Sen. Sanders is conversing and in good spirits. He will be resting up over the next few days,” Weaver said. “We are canceling his events and appearances until further notice, and we will continue to provide appropriate updates.”
