Sen. John Fetterman of Pennsylvania was hospitalized Wednesday after “feeling dizzy” during a Democratic Senate retreat in Washington, D.C., his office announced.
Fetterman was taken by his staff to George Washington University Hospital, his office said in a statement late Wednesday.
“Initial tests showed no signs of another stroke, but doctors are carrying out further tests and John is staying overnight for observation,” the statement said, adding that he is “in good spirits and talking to his staff and family”.
Fetterman, 53 suffered a stroke in May during his Senate campaign and underwent surgery to implant a pacemaker.
In October he issued a letter from a doctor who said he has “no work restrictions and can work to the full extent of his government position.”
Despite his poor health, Fetterman still suffered a defeat Republican contender Dr. Mehmet Oz in November.
He attended President Biden’s State of the Union address on Tuesday night.
