‘Momentum is with us’ in PA Senate race


Republican Dr Mehmet Oz told Sirius XM Breitbart News Saturday host Matthew Boyle that the momentum of the U.S. Senate race from Pennsylvania is driving his campaign as President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris race to save his Democratic challenger, Lt. Governor John Fetterman.

Oz has passed Fetterman in many of the latest polls, including two that followed Tuesday night’s debate between the candidates, where voters got a candid glimpse of Fetterman’s post-stroke challenges. The Democrat suffered a stroke in May, days before the Democratic primary, and relied on a captioning system during the debate due to his auditory processing issues. All night he struggled with his words.

On the heels of Fetterman’s performance and subsequent polls that showed fleeting momentum, Biden and Harris attended a fundraiser for the Democrat in Philadelphia on Friday night, which Boyle said appears to be the only campaign event. which the couple appeared together during the midterm election cycle. He added that Biden and Harris’s “emergency” fundraising dispatch, coupled with the latest poll, indicates the energy favors Oz.

The candidate agreed momentum was behind his campaign, saying it’s because he focuses on issues that matter to voters, while Democrats and the Fetterman campaign favor personal attacks.

“Matt, the momentum is with us because from day one we’ve focused on the kitchen table issues that plague Pennsylvanians — the ones that keep them up at night and worry them when they wake up — and my opponent attacked me for personal issues, you know, who I am, what I am, where I’m from,” Oz said.

Oz added that “gossip types of attacks” may be interesting for the media, but not for voters who are much more concerned with the issues that affect them, like inflation and crime, and the solutions. that candidates have to these problems.

“’The voters – they want to know, ‘How are you going to help deal with the economic challenges we face. How are you going to help me deal with the fact that I can’t go out on the streets because there is so much crime and violence? What are you going to do to… lighten my load because I’m worried my kids will overdose and die from fentanyl? “Oz explained. “We are the third state in the nation for fentanyl-related deaths. This makes every state a border state, by the way.

“’So what are you going to do to help me, voter?’ And I focused on this question because I am a doctor. This is what we do. I don’t walk into the exam room with a patient and talk about superfluous issues, I focus on the ones I know are of most concern to you,” Oz added. “And that’s why we’re going to win this election, and until or when the Democrats decide to focus on these issues, we’re going to keep winning, and I’m very confident in our race.”
