Fetterman’s communication director Joe Calvello released a statement on Friday saying:

“A few minutes ago, Senator John Fetterman was discharged from The George Washington University Hospital. 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. John is looking forward to spending some time with his family and returning to the Senate on Monday.”

Fetterman was taken to the hospital earlier this week after feeling lightheaded.
