WASHINGTON (AP) – Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign says the Vermont senator has been treated at a walk-in clinic for a minor injury while campaigning in South Carolina.

Campaign spokesman Arianna Jones told reporters that Sanders cut his head on the edge of a glass shower door Friday and went to a walk-in clinic.

She says the 77-year-old Sanders received a half-dozen stitches and was given a “clean bill of health.”

Jones says Sanders is continuing with all scheduled events, including a breakfast with local clergy and a roundtable on health care while in South Carolina.

Sanders will travel to Nevada ahead of his first rally in the early-voting state since launching his presidential bid.

The rally will be held Saturday.
