Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders says he is recovering quickly after suffering a heart attack last week and promised to return to the campaign trail “as soon as possible.”
In a 7-minute long direct to camera video posted on Instagram, which was filmed with the sound of a heart monitor beeping in the background, Sanders reiterated his intention to participate in the Democratic presidential primary debate on Tuesday outside Columbus, Ohio.
“I am feeling great,” Sanders said. “I’m getting my endurance back and I look forward to getting back on the campaign trail as soon as possible.”
“I am feeling really good and getting stronger every day,” he added. “We’re going to be out there on the campaign trail, we’re gonna be in the debate in Columbus, Ohio next week.”
