Bernie Sanders Gets Stitches After Cutting Head, Goes On With Campaigning

WCIV-TV

While the 77-year-old was given seven stitches, Sanders also received a "clean bill of health" and is set to attend all previously scheduled meetings and campaign events.

Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign said the Vermont senator received treatment at a walk-in clinic Friday for a minor injury while campaigning in SC.

Sanders tweeted that he was "proud" of the historical marker and, taking a page from his stump speech, tied the development to his own pro-union message. "On this campaign and when we are in the White House, we are going to make it easier for people to join unions, not harder".

Sanders is set to appear in Henderson, Nevada on Saturday for a campaign rally at 2:30 p.m.in Morrell Park.

The union said that by Friday, a majority of the campaign's 44 bargaining-unit-eligible employees had signed union cards. All campaign employees below the rank of deputy director will be represented by the union, which said the number could grow to more than 1,000 members.
