U.S. presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders was hospitalized on Tuesday with chest pains and a blockage in one artery and will suspend his campaign for the White House until further notice. “Following medical evaluation and testing he was found to have a blockage in one artery and two stents were successfully inserted,” Sanders senior adviser Jeff Weaver said.
