Trump Feuds With Minneapolis Mayor Over Rally Campaign Update

Her shocking death also comes the same day Bernie returned to his home state of Vermont after suffering chest pains, which later turned out to be a heart attack, during a 2020 presidential campaign stop in Nevada on October 1.

"I don't think I'm going to do that", said Sanders. "I'll make sure that I have the strength to do what I have to do". "Probably not doing four rallies a day", Sanders answered when a reporter asked him what he meant.

Sanders' campaign has said he will be at next week's Democratic presidential debate in Ohio.

He did not however say he would withdraw from the race to be the Democratic presidential nominee. His daughter-in-law, 46-year-old Rainè Riggs, died at a Pennsylvania hospital two days after being diagnosed with cancer, according to an obituary posted on the Lee & Martin Funeral Home Facebook page.

Bernie Sanders, one of the leading 2020 candidates, has been off the trail for a week since he suffered a heart attack on October 1. "You look at the totality of who a candidate is". But they also acknowledge that he will have to more directly address lingering health concerns then, if not before.

A week ago Sanders' presidential campaign announced he'd had two stents put in to fix blockages in his heart.

"I must confess that I was dumb", he said, adding that he was "more fatigued" than he usually was and that he "should have listened to those symptoms". The campaign would not confirm details about the Senator's well being while he was still in the hospital, and did not say whether he'd had a heart attack until after he'd been dispatched days later. "I assume he'll be far more vigorous", said RoseAnn DeMoro, a Sanders' confidante and former executive director of National Nurses United. Surrogates have taken Sanders' place on the campaign trail in the meantime, including Carmen Yulín Cruz, mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, who visited New Hampshire on Saturday.

Riggs, a neuropsychologist who was married to Sanders' son, Levi, was diagnosed last week with neuroendocrine cancer after several weeks of feeling ill, according to her obituary.

Monday Sanders told staff that the revolution must go on. We always planned to release them nd we have more medical records, obviously, now and we will release them at the appropriate time. Weissert reported from Washington.
