The 2020 race for the White House has been tumultuous, that’s for certain, but the stress of the contest seems to have gotten the better of Bernie Sanders.
The 78 year old Senator is currently in the midst of his second consecutive attempt at winning the democratic nomination, and is sitting somewhere around third place, depending on the polling. In order to secure the chance to take the Oval Office, he will have to usurp both former Vice President Joe Biden and fellow Senator Liz Warren.
That struggle was eclipsed this week, however, by a medical emergency.
“Sen. Sanders is conversing and in good spirits. He will be resting up over the next few days,” Weaver said. “We are canceling his events and appearances until further notice, and we will continue to provide appropriate updates.”
Sanders’ advanced age had long been a point of contention among voters.
The senator had committed to releasing his medical records before the primary voting contests started. During his 2016 presidential campaign, Sanders released a letter from his doctor saying the senator was in good health and did not have a history of heart disease.
If elected, Bernie Sanders would become the oldest person to ever take the oath of office for a first term.
