Beto O’Rourke was hospitalized with a bacterial infection on Friday, according to an announcement on the gubernatorial candidate’s twitter account.
“After feeling ill on Friday, I went to Methodist Hospital in San Antonio where I was diagnosed with a bacterial infection,” said the Democrat running for Texas governor. “The extraordinary team there — from custodians to nurses and doctors — gave me excellent care and attention, including IV antibiotics and rest,” he said.
“While my symptoms have improved, I will be resting at home in El Paso in accordance with the doctors’ recommendations,” continued Mr. O’Rourke. “I am sorry to have had to postpone events because of this, but promise to be back on the road with you as soon as I am able.”
