WATCH: Lynne Abraham Collapses During Debate, then Goes Dancing

The debate continued without Abraham after a commercial break.


Philadelphia mayoral candidate Lynne Abraham, 74, collapsed on stage during a televised debate Tuesday night, news sources reported.

But Abraham quickly recovered, and was helped off stage, according to her staff.

Philly.com reported the debate continued without Abraham after a commercial break.

Her campaign later tweeted a photo of her giving two thumbs up, with the tweet: “Lynne is feeling great! Waiting now to talk to the press.”

The day after her fainting episode—not the best outcome for your first televised debate, mayoral and otherwise—an upbeat Lynne Abraham went about campaigning, the Inquirer reported.

With the rap star 50 Cent’s “In da Club” blaring, the former district attorney danced her way to the candidates’ table at a forum in North Philadelphia, along with the other would-be mayors.

“Last night, I fell gracefully, ” she told a gym filled with high school students. “Today, I’m standing forcefully.”

“I never ate or drank anything yesterday, and that is what happened, ” she explained.
