Senate candidate out of hospital after mild heart attack
WHEELING, WV (AP) -
A Republican candidate in the U.S. Senate primary in West Virginia is out of the hospital after suffering a mild heart attack.
Weirton truck driver Jack Newbrough tells The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register that doctors who performed a heart test found a 40 percent blockage and it's being treated with medication. He says he's under orders not to drive his truck for two weeks.
Newbrough says after attending campaign events Tuesday in Beckley and Huntington, the heart attack occurred early Wednesday when he awoke with chest pressure and discomfort but no pain. He drove himself to the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Huntington before undergoing a procedure at another hospital. He was released on Friday.
Newbrough and five other GOP candidates will square off in the May 8 primary.
