Bernie Sanders home in Vermont after heart attack


BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is back at his Vermont home after being treated for a heart attack in Las Vegas.
The plane carrying the 78-year-old senator arrived in Vermont just before 6 p.m. Saturday, one day after he was released from a hospital.
As he left the airport he told reporters “I’m feeling great, thank you.”


He was then driven home in a motorcade where he was greeted by family at the front door.
Sanders was attending a campaign event Tuesday when he experienced chest discomfort and was taken to a hospital.
Sanders’ campaign released a statement from his doctors that said two stents were inserted to open up a blocked artery in his heart.
The doctors said the rest of his stay was “uneventful with good expected progress.”
