Sanders plans to 'change the nature' of campaign after heart attack

Trump Feuds With Minneapolis Mayor Over Rally Campaign Update

Senator Bernie Sanders, a week after suffering a heart attack in Las Vegas, said on Tuesday that he planned to slow down his pace on the campaign trail and acknowledged that voters would likely consider his health when deciding whether to vote for him.

But his campaign's lack of transparency surrounding the episode has sparked a media backlash and reinvigorated worries about the trio of septuagenarians now leading the race for the Democratic nomination, among which the 78-year-old Sanders is the oldest.

"I must confess that I was dumb", Sanders said, acknowledging his health scare."I was born and thank God, I have lot of energy, and during this campaign I've been doing in some cases three or four rallies a day, going all over the states ..."

But, he added, "I certainly intend to be actively campaigning" and "I don't know that there's anybody that did more rallies than we have done".

He told reporters he was "dumb" for ignoring symptoms ahead of his heart attack.

Sanders' campaign has said he will be at next week's Democratic presidential debate in Ohio. "But make no mistake: Sen".

Still, he remains a formidable challenger; just last week he announced a third-quarter fund-raising total of $25.3 million, the largest in the Democratic field.

But just hours later, he was at a campaign event in Nevada when he experienced chest discomfort and was taken to a hospital, where he was diagnosed with a heart attack.

The 78-year-old Democratic presidential candidate was hospitalized in Las Vegas on October 1 after he experienced chest discomfort during a campaign event.

"It wasn't a major heart attack. I assume he'll be far more vigorous", said RoseAnn DeMoro, a Sanders' confidante and former executive director of National Nurses United. The stents will be extremely helpful in terms of blood flow. "Heaven help the opposition". Levi ran for a New Hampshire congressional seat in 2018 and Bernie has run for multiple campaigns, including the 2020 presidential campaign, and she has often been by their side with encouragement.

Sanders has been active in recent days communicating with his staff and his broader network of longtime supporters. Gonna see him on a regular basis to get some checkups, and obviously I'll be on and off in Vermont and so we're gonna meet him today.

Sanders said he still plans to release his medical records, promising to do so "at the appropriate time". Weissert reported from Washington.
