SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — Former U.S. Rep. Doug Ose said he is ending his campaign for governor in next month’s recall election as he recovers from a heart attack.
In a statement released Tuesday, Ose said he was hospitalized Sunday evening after a “sudden onset of concerning medical symptoms.”
While I’m told I should expect a full recovery, additional procedures and potentially surgery are required, and it has become clear that I must now focus my attention on rehabilitation and healing. Sometimes you have to do things that you don’t want to do. It is what is: my campaign for governor is over.Doug Ose
Despite dropping out of the race, Ose urged Californians to vote to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom but did not endorse another candidate.
This is a developing story.
