Fetterman to hold first campaign rally since suffering a stroke in May

Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, the Democratic Senate nominee, will hold his first public rally next week. The rally is planned for Erie, Pa., one of the state’s swing counties, on Aug. 12. The race to fill the seat held by retiring Sen. Patrick J. Toomey will help determine majority control of the Senate. In an interview late last month with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, he said he felt ready to return to the trail. “I might miss a word every now and then in a conversation, or I might slur two words. Even then, I think that's infrequent,” he said.
