Bernie Sanders Gets Stitches After Run-In With Glass Shower Door, Campaign Says
Bernie Sanders received treatment at a walk-in clinic Friday for a minor injury while campaigning in South Carolina, his presidential campaign says.
The Vermont senator cut his head on the edge of a glass shower door and received a half-dozen stitches. But the 2020 candidate was given a “clean bill of health,” his campaign announced.

Sanders, 77, is continuing with all scheduled campaign events.
He attended a health care panel with a bandage on his head at the International Longshoremen’s Association Local 1422 union hall in Charleston. Prior to that, Sanders also attended a breakfast meeting with approximately 20 local clergy members, the campaign said.
Sanders announced his White House bid last month, entering a crowded 2020 race. The senator ran against and ultimately lost to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.
