Democrat Beto O’Rourke was hospitalized on Sunday during his 5,600 trek across Texas. The Democrat gubernatorial candidate is suffering from a bacterial infection.
Texas Democrat gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke, who had previously lectured us on health and urged us to follow the agenda, was hospitalized with a bacterial infection.
Beto O’Rourke announced on Sunday that he would be taking time off from the campaign trail to recover from a bacterial infection, according to NPR.
“After feeling ill on Friday, I went to Methodist Hospital in San Antonio where I was diagnosed with a bacterial infection,” O’Rourke said in a statement via Twitter.
“The extraordinary team there — from custodians to nurses and doctors — gave me excellent care and attention, including IV antibiotics and rest,” he added.
“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 with you as soon as I am able,” the post concluded.
Beto’s campaign’s director of communications, Chris Evans, confirmed Sunday that he had been released from the hospital.
On Monday, he planned to hold two virtual events.
We’re continuing our organizing TONIGHT with two virtual events!

Via The Daily Caller — O’Rourke also confirmed that he was placed on an intravenous (IV) antibiotics dispenser. The procedure, where antibiotics are injected directly into the bloodstream, is used for serious infections when oral antibiotics cannot reach tissues quickly enough.
