North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein has left a Raleigh hospital after being treated earlier this week for what he called a “minor stroke.” Stein’s office confirmed his release Wednesday. He said Tuesday that doctors had removed a small blood clot and that he had no lingering effects. The 55-year-old Democrat wrote that he had stroke-like symptoms Monday night after he and his wife walked the family dog. Stein tweeted out the couple celebrating their anniversary Wednesday at a Raleigh restaurant.
