Sen. John Fetterman (D-Penn.) has been hospitalized overnight after feeling lightheaded, his staff said in a statement late Wednesday, months after Fetterman suffered a stroke on the campaign trail that became a central focus of his midterms race.
Fetterman “began feeling lightheaded” at the end of a Senate Democratic retreat Wednesday, his communications director Joe Calvello said in a statement, and left to have his staff take him to The George Washington University Hospital.
The senator is remaining overnight for observation.
Initial tests did not show evidence of a stroke, Calvello said, but the hospital is performing additional tests.
The senator is “in good spirits and talking with his staff and family,” Calvello said.
