Democratic Sen. John Fetterman was released from a hospital on Friday, his office said, and plans to be back on the job in the Senate on Monday. The Pennsylvania freshman was admitted after a lightheaded spell. Doctors had already ruled out a stroke as the cause, and his spokesman said Friday there are no signs Fetterman had suffered a seizure, the Washington Post reports. "In addition to the CT, CTA, and MRI tests ruling out a stroke, his EEG test results came back normal, with no evidence of seizures," Joe Calvello said. Fetterman had a stroke while campaigning for the office. (More John Fetterman stories.)
