Democrat Senator Chris Van Hollen Suffers Stroke

First term Senator Chris Van Hollen suffered a stroke recently while giving a speech in his home state of Maryland The Daily Wire reports.

Van Hollen said he felt lightheaded while giving speech and a doctor later confirmed that he had in fact suffered a stroke.

The statement said that doctors do not suspect any longterm damage from the incident will occur.

Van Hollen is not the only elected official from the Democrat party to suffer a stroke.

Pennsylvania senate candidate and Lt. Governor of Pennsylvania John Fetterman announce he suffered a stroke recently as well.

“I hadn’t been feeling well, but was so focused on the campaign that I ignored the signs and just kept going… On Friday it finally caught up with me. I had a stroke that was caused by a clot from my heart being in an A-fib rhythm for too long.”

And earlier this year Democrat Sen. Ben Ray Luján (N.M.) suffered a stroke but has since recovered and returned to work.
