No new strokes were detected; Hospital examination for seizures

A spokeswoman for freshman Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) said Thursday evening that hospital tests show no signs of a new stroke and that he is being evaluated for a seizure that has not yet been detected. No diagnosis has yet been made for the lightheadedness that prompted Fetterman’s trip to George Washington University Hospital in Northwest Washington, D.C., on Wednesday evening.

A previous statement from Fetterman’s office Wednesday evening described him as “in good spirits and talking to his staff and family.”

Fetterman suffered a debilitating stroke before the Democratic primary last May. His wife Gisele and staff delayed notifying the public about the stroke and then covered up how devastating the stroke was after the initial. Fetterman delayed a general election debate until after primary voting began in an effort to prevent voters from seeing how hard it was for him to act. Fetterman won the general election and here we are.
