Senator John Fetterman has been rushed to hospital this evening.
The Pennsylvania Democrat, who has suffered from a stoke on May 13 last year, is currently undergoing tests at the George Washington University Hospital in Washington DC.
A spokesperson for the politician said on Wednesday night: ‘Towards the end of the Senate Democratic retreat today, Senator John Fetterman began feeling lightheaded.
‘He left and called his staff, who picked him up and drove him to The George Washington University Hospital.
‘Initial tests did not show evidence of a new stoke, but doctors are running more tests and John is remaining overnight for observation. He is in good spirits and talking with his staff and family.’
Fetterman suffered his stroke in May, days before Pennsylvania’s Democratic primary, but he still won the race handily.
