Bernie’s heart attack and campaign hiccups

Senator Bernie Sanders’s heart attack early this month raised questions about his campaign viability. That, however, was overshadowed when AOC endorsed sanders and joined him in the last week’s NYC rally. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) followed suit and now with Tlaib’s endorsement, and with the biggest campaign rally on Sunday, Sanders campaign seems to be resilient.
