“We are canceling his events and appearances until further notice, and we will continue to provide appropriate updates,” says Sanders adviser.
US Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders has been hospitalizated, after undergoing chest discomfort on the campaign trail.
The 78-year-old Senator underwent surgery, with two stents being inserted into his heart, after doctors found a “blockage in one artery.”
“Sen. Sanders is conversing and in good spirits. He will be resting up over the next few days,” said Sanders spokesman Jeff Weaver said. “We are canceling his events and appearances until further notice, and we will continue to provide appropriate updates.”
If elected, Sanders would be the oldest president in US history.
Sanders is five years older than current US President Donald Trump, who is 73-years-old, and was the oldest person elected to the office.
