Clinton to return to the campaign trail Thursday
Hillary Clinton will return to the campaign trail Thursday, spokesman Nick Merrill said.
The Democratic nominee, who was recently diagnosed with pneumonia, spent Tuesday at her home in Chappaqua, New York, where she watched President Barack Obama’s stump speech in Philadelphia on her behalf, Merrill said. She has no events Wednesday.
“She has spent the day catching up on reading briefings, making calls, and she watched President Obama’s speech in Philadelphia on TV,” he said.
Clinton abruptly left a September 11 commemoration ceremony Sunday after what her campaign said was an episode of “overheating.” A video showed a wobbly Clinton stumbling as she was assisted into her van to depart the ceremony.
She then went to daughter Chelsea Clinton’s apartment and later returned to her home in Chappaqua, where campaign manager Robby Mook told CNN’s Jake Tapper she was attended to by her doctor.
Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday but decided to continue on the trail. The incident has prompted further scrutiny of her health and her campaign’s transparency, and comes less than two months before Election Day and as polls show a tightening race.
