“After getting amazing care from the wonderful team at Penn Medicine Lancaster General Hospital, I could not be happier to finally be heading home to be with my family,” he said.
While Fetterman was hospitalized, he won Pennsylvania’s Democratic Senate primary, drawing 59 percent of the vote.
Fetterman will face the winner of the still-unresolved Republican primary between physician-TV celebrity Mehmet Oz and former hedge fund CEO David McCormick in the fall. At stake is the Senate seat now held by Republican Pat Toomey, who is retiring after two terms.
“I am going to take the time I need now to rest and get to 100% so I can go full speed soon and flip this seat blue,” Fetterman said in his statement.
