Pennsylvania’s democrat lieutenant governor and current senatorial candidate John Fetterman canceled campaign events this weekend due to having a stroke on Friday. Fortunately, he tweeted late this weekend that doctors were able to clear the clot and he expects to make a full recovery after taking some time off.
The 52-year-old senatorial candidate has received the Covid vaccinations and booster shots.
My entire family is vaccinated + boosted.
Vaccines + effective treatments are safe, and still the key to getting us out of this new phase of the pandemic.

Fetterman waited three days before releasing news of his stroke to the public, only 48 hours prior to Pennsylvania’s primary election. This has raised speculation that his campaign was trying to withhold this information from voters until after the vote, only releasing an official statement after the news started to leak to the public.
“I had a stroke that was caused by a clot from my heart being in an A-fib rhythm for too long,” wrote Fetterman in his statement.

Conservative host of ‘Human Events Daily’, Jack Posobiec, tweeted,
“Glad he is doing well but Fetterman’s campaign should have told the people of Pennsylvania when they knew what happened. Not 3 days later.”

Fetterman, the frontrunner in the Democrat race for Senate in Pennsylvania, has been questioned for his political ethics before, having received thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from a corrupt union back in 2021.
