Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) was released from the hospital late Friday afternoon with all tests came back negative, according to his spokesman Joe Calvello. Fetterman had been taken by staff to George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C. Wednesday evening after feeling “lightheaded”.
Fetterman was seen Tuesday night at the State of the Union address.

Calvello’s statement, “NEWS: A few minutes ago, Senator Fetterman was discharged from the hospital. In addition to the CT, CTA and MRI tests ruling out a stroke, his EEG test results came back normal, with no evidence of seizures. John is looking forward to returning to the Senate on Monday.”

Fetterman’s discharge from the hospital comes after a New York Times article published Friday morning that reported the stroke he suffered last May and its effects on him were much more serious than the Fetterman campaign led on.
“The New York Times published what appears intended to be a sympathy article on Friday by reporter Annie Karni on freshman Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) on how he is dealing with becoming a U.S. senator just months after suffering a debilitating stroke. However the article contains quotes and reports that indicate Fetterman should never have continued with his candidacy after what the Times calls his “near fatal” stroke last May–including the observations that Fetterman knows he likely permanently harmed himself by not taking the proper time to recuperate, that he has “serious mental health challenges” and that his brain is so scrambled he hears “Peanuts” voices when people talk to him at times.”
Fetterman’s wife Gisele posted a thank you note to supporters on Thursday.
