“After receiving incredible care from the wonderful team at Penn Medicine Lancaster General Hospital, I couldn’t be happier to finally return home to be with my family,” he said.
While Fetterman was hospitalized, he won the Pennsylvania Democratic Senate primary, receiving 59% of the vote.
Fetterman will face the winner of the still-unresolved Republican primary between medical 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’m going to take the time I need now to rest and get to 100% so I can go full throttle soon and rock that seat blue,” Fetterman said in his statement.
