Bernie Sanders is taking a break from his 2020 presidential campaign as the 78-year-old recovers from a heart procedure, his campaign announced on Wednesday.
“During a campaign event yesterday evening, Sen. Sanders experienced some chest discomfort. Following medical evaluation and testing he was found to have a blockage in one artery and two stents were successfully inserted,” according to a press release from his campaign.
“Sen. Sanders is conversing and in good spirits. He will be resting up over the next few days,” the statement added. “We are canceling his events and appearances until further notice, and we will continue to provide appropriate updates.”
