On Tuesday, the 78-years-old Sanders said that he will cut back on the number of campaign events after a recent visit to the cardiologist. "I'll make sure I have the strength to do what I have to do". I was born and thank God, I have lot of energy during this campaign I've been doing in some cases three or four rallies a day, going all over the state, Iowa, New Hampshire, wherever.
Sanders is scheduled to attend the fourth Democratic presidential debate in OH next week.
Sanders' campaign has said he will be at next week's Democratic presidential debate in Ohio.
Rainè Riggs, a neuropsychologist and daughter-in-law of Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, died on Saturday - two days after receiving a cancer diagnosis, according to an obituary shared online by Lee & Martin Funeral Home in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania.
Bernie Sanders, one of the leading 2020 candidates, has been off the trail for a week since he suffered a heart attack on October 1. "You look at the totality of who a candidate is", he said. "And yet I, in the last month of 2, just was more worn out than I usually have been". "Bernie Sanders is as committed - more so, even more now than he always has been, if that's even possible", national campaign co-chair Nina Turner told the Associated Press in an interview.
The politician previously had two stents inserted into his heart after doctors discovered a blockage in one of his arteries.
"It wasn't a major heart attack".
His campaign noted that he had $33.7 million in cash on hand in the quarter that ended last month and, on Monday, he released a plan to impose stricter campaign finance limits. "It is simple.... our world will never be the same", the family wrote of Riggs, who they said earned her doctorate in neuropsychology at the University of Vermont and spent her life dedicated to medicine and psychology. According to the obituary, the mom of three had fallen ill three weeks before her death but doctors had been "stumped" as to what was wrong with her.
Sanders has been active in recent days communicating with his staff and broader network of longtime supporters. In a video by CNN of the exchange he had with reporters, Sanders said he'd be back on the trail "soon".
