Sanders Campaign Tries to Keep Momentum in His Absence

Trump Feuds With Minneapolis Mayor Over Rally Campaign Update

Trump Feuds With Minneapolis Mayor Over Rally Campaign Update

Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., admitted Tuesday he "was dumb" and ignored warning signs of a health condition in the months leading up to his heart attack last week.

Senator Bernie Sanders' family is in mourning after his daughter-in-law Dr. Rainè Riggs suddenly died over the weekend.

Pressed on what that meant, Sanders replied: "Well, probably not doing four rallies a day". But it hasn't commented on if or when he'll resume campaigning before that - or what his next steps will be.

Sanders said that in the last month or two he was more tired than usual and "I should have listened to those symptoms".

"We're going to meet him", Sanders said moments before getting in a auto with his wife, Jane, to attend the appointment with his new physician.

And they hinted changes would be coming to better keep their candidate healthy.

The politician previously had two stents inserted into his heart after doctors discovered a blockage in one of his arteries. "You look at the totality of who a candidate is", he said.

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.

NBC Producer Says Matt Lauer Raped Her in 2014
The book describes Nevils as profoundly affected by the alleged rape, causing her to abuse alcohol and withdrawal from work. Lauer had already admitted having an affair with an unnamed woman in an apology issued immediately after he was sacked .

"It wasn't a major heart attack". Sanders tweeted a video of himself standing alongside his wife and close adviser, Jane Sanders, in Las Vegas after he'd been released from the hospital on Friday, thanking well wishers. He had a minor heart attack.

Riggs, a neuropsychologist and mother-of-three, was married to Levi Sanders, who ran unsuccessfully for a New Hampshire congressional seat in 2018.

According to her death notice, Dr. Riggs was the director of behavioral medicine at Dartmouth Medical School for several years, and she started the Palliative Care Department for Dartmouth Medical Center.

Monday Sanders told staff that the revolution must go on. Elizabeth Warren is a viable alternative to Sanders and she younger (70) and by all appearances has tons of energy to see a campaign to the end.

Sanders said Tuesday that he would be meeting with the cardiologist on a regular basis and getting some checkups, but that his main doctor is in Washington, meaning he didn't have a physician in Vermont, "let alone a cardiologist".

Still, according to Politico, Sanders said the latest development would not prompt him to release his medical records any sooner, noting that they will be disclosed "at the appropriate time".
