"No other candidate is doing four of five events a day, running all over this country," Sanders responded. 

"You can start releasing medical records and it never ends," Sanders added. "We have released the substantive part of all our medical records, we have doctors who are, cardiologists who are, confirming I am in good health. I am in good health."

Todd asked Sanders what changes he's made that his doctors suggested since his heart attack. 

Sanders said he is trying to "walk a bit more," but his schedule doesn't always allow it. He is also trying to sleep "a little better." 

"I'm feeling great," he said. 

Sanders released three letters from his doctors at the end of December declaring him healthy. 

The letters were released after the 78-year-old candidate briefly left the trail in October after suffering a heart attack and undergoing a procedure to receive stents.
