Sen. Bob Casey, a Pennsylvania Democrat, needs to undergo surgery for prostate cancer but expects to make a full recovery.
|Sen. Bob Casey|
Casey's seat is up for election in 2024. A potential challenger, Vigdor's article contends, is "David McCormick, a former hedge fund executive who lost last year's Republican primary against the celebrity physician Mehmet Oz for Pennsylvania's other Senate seat."
Pennsylvania is a swing state that's played a big role in the last two presidential elections.
Casey, who currently is in his third term, didn't mention any other treatments for the prostate cancer.
Health has played a major role in Pennsylvania politics recently. John Futterman, the state's lieutenant governor who beat out Oz, is recovering from a stroke that he had last May.
More information on surgeries and other disease treatments can be found in Rollercoaster: How a man can survive his partner's breast cancer, a VitalityPress book that I, Woody Weingarten, aimed at male caregivers.
