John Fetterman, the favorite to win Pennsylvania's Democratic US Senate contest, announced Sunday that he's recovering after a stroke. Pennsylvania's primary is on Tuesday, and polls show Fetterman, Pennsylvania lieutenant governor, holding a significant lead over US Rep. Conor Lamb and state Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta. Fetterman, who began canceling events on Friday, said Sunday he is continuing in the race.

His spokesman Joe Calvello told CNN that the lieutenant governor was on his way to an event on Friday at a college in Millersville, which is near Lancaster, when his wife, Gisele, urged him to get checked out at a hospital. "I wasn't feeling well, so I went to the hospital to get checked out," Fetterman said in the statement. "I didn't want to go - I didn't think I had to - but Gisele insisted, and as usual, she was right."

"I had a stroke that was caused by a clot from my heart being in an A-fib rhythm for too long," he said, adding, "I'm feeling much better, and the doctors tell me I didn't suffer any cognitive damage. I'm well on my way to a full recovery."

He continued: "Our campaign isn't slowing down one bit, and we are still on track to win this primary on Tuesday, and flip this Senate seat in November."

Speedy recovery John and best of luck Tuesday and this fall.
