HARRISBURG (AP) – John Fetterman is recovering from a stroke and now says he almost died from it after ignoring warning signs for years and a doctor’s advice to take blood thinners. Fetterman spoke in a statement released by his campaign. He has remained out of public view as he recovers ahead of the fall general election. Fetterman’s cardiologist also disclosed that he has cardiomyopathy. Fetterman won the Democrat nomination in a four-way race while in the hospital four days after the stroke.
