“Earlier today, an angiogram indicated that I had experienced a minor stroke in the form of a small venous [sic] tear at the back of my head,” the senator added. “Fortunately, I have been informed that there are no long-term effects or damage as a result of this incident, but my doctors have advised that out of an abundance of caution I remain under observation for a few days.”
