Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, one of the most popular candidates in the state's Senate primary races, is leaving the hospital.
Fetterman was released more than a week after he suffered a stroke.
"I am feeling great, but per my doctor's orders, and Gisele's orders, I am going to continue to rest and recover. Later this week I will have a follow-up visit with my doctors at Penn Medicine Lancaster General Hospital," Fetterman said in a statement. "I am going to take the time I need now to rest and get to 100% so I can go full speed soon and flip this seat blue."

Fetterman, who maintained a 30-point lead over his chief primary rival, according to a RealClearPolitics average, revealed his sudden medical troubles in a statement on May 15, saying that he had gone to the hospital for a checkup after he began feeling ill. The 52-year-old lieutenant governor said that he "hadn't been feeling well, but was so focused on the campaign that I ignored the signs and just kept going."
