Despite suffering a stroke on May 13, 2022, then-Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman opted to move forward with his U.S. Senate campaign. And in the end, the liberal/progressive Democrat defeated his Republican opponent, Dr. Mehmet Oz, and flipped a U.S. Senate seat that had been mostly in GOP hands for decades.

On Wednesday, February 8, there were new concerns about Fetterman’s health. The Pennsylvania Democrat, according to The Morning Call, was hospitalized after "feeling lightheaded." But Joe Calvello, Fetterman’s communication director, says that the 53-year-old U.S. senator doesn’t appear to have suffered another stroke.

In an official statement, Calvello said, “He left and called his staff, who picked him up and drove him to the George Washington University Hospital. Initial tests did not show evidence of a new stroke, but doctors are running more tests, and John is remaining overnight for observation. He is in good spirits and talking with his staff and family. We will provide more information when we have it.”
