Bernie Sanders Is Hospitalized for Heart Procedure and Cancels Events

After experiencing chest discomfort at a recent event, Bernie Sanders was treated for a blocked artery.

Bernie Sanders has cancelled all events until further notice while he recovers at a Las Vegas Hospital. Bernie was traveling to a Las Vegas Gun Control Forum when he felt the chest pain. “Senator Sanders is conversing and in good spirits. He will be resting up over the next few days.” Jeff Weaver, an adviser to Sanders, said in a statement. Sanders had kept up a brutal schedule on his campaign trail, holding multiple events in several cities a day.

The stories lead was very interesting and really caught my attention. Bernie Sanders is a major candidate for president in the 2020 election, so him having health problems is big news. This gives the story value and the Times did a good job of quoting important people on Bernie’s team. They also took an excerpt from his twitter profile which was also very useful information. The Time’s emphasized how grueling of a schedule Bernie has and does a good job of presenting good information.
