SÃO PAULO—Even as unorthodox politics becomes the new norm across much of the world, Brazil’s presidential race is emerging as particularly unusual: One of the top two contenders is campaigning from a hospital bed and the other from a police cell.

Right-wing candidate Jair Bolsonaro, 63, was stabbed in the gut on Thursday by a leftist religious fanatic in a knife attack that almost killed him. The former army captain is expected to remain bedridden for at least a week and off the campaign trail until the October elections.
