The procedure to implant a pacemaker into Lt. Gov. John Fetterman was successful, a spokesperson for his U.S. Senate campaign said Tuesday.

In a campaign statement, Joe Calvello, director of communications, said Fetterman is still in the hospital and recovering.

“John continues to improve every day, and he is still on track for a full recovery,” he said.

Fetterman suffered a stroke last week, just days ahead of the primary election in Pennsylvania.

Gov. Tom Wolf on Tuesday announced that Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman, R-Centre, would temporarily be stepping in to serve as lieutenant governor while Fetterman recovers.
