Sanders says he will resume campaign ‘as soon as possible’
WASHINGTON — Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., said Thursday that he’s “getting my endurance back” and growing “stronger every day” after suffering a heart attack last week. He promised to return to the presidential campaign trail “as soon as possible.”
In the meantime, a video posted in Twitter showed him batting baseballs around the yard.
“I am feeling great,” the senator said in a separate seven-minute video posted online from his home.
While lying in a hospital bed last week in Las Vegas, he said, he “thought about a lot of things,” including “what would have happened” if he did not have health insurance through his job as a senator and Medicare.
Sanders, 78, insisted the experience made him “feel even more strongly” the need “to end this dysfunctional and cruel health care system.”
