Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman on Sunday was discharged from the hospital, he said in a statement.
“Today I am headed back to Braddock,” the state’s Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate said. His wife Gisele posted footage of him walking out of the hospital.
Fetterman was hospitalized in Lancaster after suffering a stroke May 13. On Tuesday, he had a pacemaker implanted.
“After getting amazing care from the wonderful team at Penn Medicine Lancaster General Hospital, I could not be happier to finally be heading home to be with my family,” he said.
While Fetterman was hospitalized, he won Pennsylvania’s Democratic Senate primary, drawing 59 percent of the vote.
Fetterman will face the winner of the still-unresolved Republican primary between physician-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 am going to take the time I need now to rest and get to 100% so I can go full speed soon and flip this seat blue,” Fetterman said in his statement.
