Texas Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Issues Statement on Health


El Paso — Beto O’Rourke released the following update Sunday after becoming sick on Friday:

 “After feeling ill on Friday, I went to Methodist Hospital in San Antonio where I was diagnosed with a bacterial infection. The extraordinary team there — from custodians to nurses and doctors — gave me excellent care and attention, including IV antibiotics and rest. While my symptoms have improved, I will be resting at home in El Paso in accordance with the doctors’ recommendations. I am sorry to have had to postpone events because of this, but promise to be back on the road as soon as I am able. I cannot thank the amazing women and men at Methodist enough for the treatment I received.”

Hmmmm, they're being awful hush hush about the nature of his "infection". I can think a several types of bacteria a political candidate wouldn't want the public to know he had contracted.
