San­ders says he will re­sume cam­paign ‘as soon as pos­si­ble’

The Morning Call - - NATION & WORLD -

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.”
