Fetterman checked himself into a hospital in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on May 13 as he was on his way to a campaign event. He was found to have suffered a stroke, which doctors treated, and he was released on May 22 after a nine-day stay. Fetterman's cardiologist said Friday that the candidate suffers from both atrial fibrillation and cardiomyopathy...
Despite multiple statements during and after his time in the hospital, John Fetterman did not disclose previously that he had been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation in 2017. And while the letter from his cardiologist released on Friday provided insight into what led to Fetterman's stroke, the doctors that performed the procedure on the candidate in Lancaster last month have yet to speak publicly.
It feels as if Fetterman was trying to cover up the severity of his health crisis and the press didn't let him get away with that and, now, he's trying to minimize it.
His wife has become the public face of the campaign for the moment. During the primary campaign, her image was always prominent in his TV ads. So, she hasn't come out of nowhere.
And, she is a babe.
As progressive as Fetterman is, in a purple state, he had a 50/50 shot at best.
