(Newser) – After suffering a heart attack in October, Bernie Sanders vowed to release his full medical records because "the people do have a right to know about the health of ... somebody who's running for president." So much for that. On Tuesday, the winner of the New Hampshire primary—and, he hopes, of the Iowa caucuses, too—said voters shouldn't expect any new information. "I think we have released a detailed medical report and I'm comfortable on what we have done," he said, per USA Today. The outlet notes the 78-year-old released a letter from his primary doctor, describing him as in "good health," in December.

"We have released quite as much documentation as any other candidate has," Sanders continued at a CNN town hall in Las Vegas. He had the same answer for Meet the Press' Chuck Todd during an interview on Feb. 9, only to be told that "no other candidate has had a heart attack." Sanders countered that "no other candidate is doing four or five events a day running all over the country," as he is, per the Daily Beast. He added "winning will make me sleep a lot better." The Vermont senator will face more questions at Wednesday's Democratic debate in Nevada. Among the moderators: Chuck Todd, per Vox. (Read more Bernie Sanders stories.)
