A spokeswoman for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign says the Vermont Independent senator received treatment at a walk-in clinic Friday for a minor injury while campaigning in South Carolina.
Campaign spokesman Arianna Jones told reporters that Sanders, 77, cut his head on the edge of a glass shower door. Sanders received 7 stitches and was given a “clean bill of health,” she added.
Jones says Sanders is continuing with all scheduled events, including a breakfast with local clergy and a round table on health care while in South Carolina. Sanders will travel to Nevada ahead of his first rally in the early-voting state since launching his presidential bid, which will be held Saturday.
