Bernie Sanders to Scale Back Campaign Events After Heart Attack

HeadlineOct 09, 2019

Vermont senator and 2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders said Tuesday he will scale back the number of campaign events he participates in as he recovers from a heart attack he suffered last week at a rally in Las Vegas. Sanders says he still plans to join an October 15 televised debate of the top 12 Democratic candidates. Over the weekend, Sanders’s daughter-in-law, Rainè Riggs, died of neuroendocrine cancer — just two days after her diagnosis. Riggs, who was married to Senator Sanders’ son Levi, was just 46 years old.
