Sen. Bernie Sanders said on Tuesday that he will cut back on the number of campaign events he does on a daily basis following an appointment with his cardiologist one week after suffering a heart attack. 

Sanders insisted that he would continue "actively campaigning" this fall, but that he would scale back on the number of rallies he does daily from about four to two, in addition to other smaller events. 

"I think we're gonna change the nature of the campaign a bit, make sure that I have the strength to do what I have to do," Sanders told reporters outside his home in Burlington, VT on Tuesday evening.

He added, "I don't know if there's anybody who's done more rallies than we have done ... we're gonna probably not do three or four rallies a day, we're gonna do two or do other events as well."
