Here is the statement issued by Sanders campaign Senior Advisor Jeff Weaver Wednesday morning:
“During a campaign event yesterday evening, Sen. Sanders experienced some chest discomfort. Following medical evaluation and testing he was found to have a blockage in one artery and two stents were successfully inserted. Sen. Sanders is conversing and in good spirits. He will be resting up over the next few days. We are canceling his events and appearances until further notice, and we will continue to provide appropriate updates.”
Sanders had been scheduled to appear with other Democratic presidential contenders at a forum on gun violence in Las Vegas Wednesday.
