What to Know About the Rare Disease That Killed Bernie Sanders' Daughter-in-Law

Sanders made the statement to reporters from outside his Burlington, Vermont home after a recent visit with his cardiologist. Experts have said Sanders should be able to resume his campaign. "I'll make sure I have the strength to do what I have to do".

Sanders said he plans to hold less than four rallies a day - as he was doing in the lead up to his heart attack. They pushed out the news that Sanders plans to participate in the upcoming Democratic primary debate was out.

He did not however say he would withdraw from the race to be the Democratic presidential nominee.

The Lee & Martin Funeral Home in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, confirmed that she died on October 6, which was the day Sanders went back to his home state of Vermont after suffering a heart attack. He has since been recovering from his heart surgery.

"We're going to look at everything - the whole campaign in its totality - and make adjustments where necessary", said national campaign co-chair Nina Turner, who spoke with Sanders at length on Tuesday during a call with his four national co-chairs.

Today's Nobel Prize in physics was evenly split between two discoveries and, thus, unevenly split among the three honored. Peebles, who works as a professor at Princeton University , did his undergraduate degree at the University of Manitoba.


Sanders said that in the last month or two he was more worn out than usual and "I should have listened to those symptoms". At the time his campaign was busy brushing off questions from the press about the 78-year-old candidate's health, though it took them three days to acknowledge that it was, in fact, a heart attack that he experienced.

Sanders insisted he was "feeling good", adding that he doesn't think the heart attack, for which he had two stents inserted into his chest to help with blood flow, "helps or hurts" his chances of beating President Trump in 2020. "Bernie Sanders is as committed - more so, even more now than he always has been, if that's even possible". He had a minor heart attack. "Heaven help the opposition".

A neuropsychologist, she was married to Levi Sanders, who ran unsuccessfully for a New Hampshire congressional seat in 2018.

Sanders has been active in recent days communicating with his staff and his broader network of longtime supporters. Elizabeth Warren is a viable alternative to Sanders and she younger (70) and by all appearances has tons of energy to see a campaign to the end. Gonna see him on a regular basis to get some checkups, and obviously I'll be on and off in Vermont and so we're gonna meet him today. Weissert reported from Washington.
