Sanders says he 'misspoke' about scaling back rallies after heart attack, vows 'vigorous' campaign

By Dartunorro Clark

Excerpt:

Sen. Bernie Sanders on Wednesday tamped down speculation that he would slow his presidential campaign after he suffered a heart attack last week, saying he plans to compete as vigorously as ever for the 2020 Democratic nomination.

The Vermont independent told NBC in an exclusive interview airing Wednesday night on "Nightly News" and Thursday on the "Today" show that his health scare has only strengthened his resolve, despite telling reporters a day earlier he planned to curtail his normally packed schedule.

"I misspoke the other day. I said a word I should not have said and media drives me a little bit nuts to make a big deal about it," Sanders said during the interview alongside his wife, Jane Sanders. "We're going to get back into the groove of a very vigorous campaign, I love doing rallies and I love doing town meetings.

He added, "I want to start off slower and build up and build up and build up."

14. Yet more unsupported allegations, eh?

 

I s'pose hate is as good as any other justification for his downward spiraling in the polls.

(On an unrelated note: we know... we know, polls don't mean anything unless they place the Sacred Cow in a righteous and positive light bright enough to light Uranus)
