The campaign of Donnelly, a member of the California State Assembly, uploaded a video on YouTube showing the Republican successfully giving a woman the Heimlich maneuver during a political dinner last week. The video is titled, “Assemblyman Donnelly to the rescue!”

“You all right?” Donnelly, wearing a wearing a black cowboy hat, asks after successfully helping the woman.

“Thank you so much,” she told Donnelly afterwards, hugging the candidate.

Someone sitting at the woman’s table blurted out: “Tim, you got her vote.”
