Bernie’s Campaign Says He Had a Heart Attack, Bernie Says He’s “Feeling So Much Better”

After quite a bit of speculation, Bernie Sanders’ campaign has acknowledged the medical episode that occurred this week was indeed a heart attack.

NBC News reports Senator Bernie Sanders was discharged from a Las Vegas hospital Friday after suffering a heart attack earlier in the week, his campaign said.

Asked how he was feeling as he left the Desert Springs Hospital Medical Center, Sanders told NBC News “great. I feel great.”

In a video posted Friday on Twitter, he echoed that sentiment: “I’m feeling so much better.”

Per LATimes, Presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders greatly eclipsed former Vice President Joe Biden in fundraising over the past three months, placing progressive Democrats on strong footing in the crucial final stretch before primary voting begins.

Warren’s campaign reported to donors Friday morning that the Massachusetts senator raised $24.6 million from more than half a million donors in the fundraising quarter that ended Monday. The amount is just shy of the haul by her Senate colleague and fellow progressive Sanders, of Vermont, who earlier in the week reported raising $25.3 million.

“Our grassroots movement is in an incredible position,” Warren campaign manager Roger Lau said in an e-mail to supporters. He invited them to “close your eyes and picture Wall Street bankers scowling into their catered breakfast” upon hearing of Warren’s haul. Some 300,000 donors to Warren in the last quarter were giving to her for the first time.
