Pennsylvania Democratic Senate candidate and Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman has not formally offered to participate in a debate, Dr. Mehmet Oz, the Pennsylvania Republican Senate candidate, Told Breitbart News Saturdaypresuming that his challenger is either trying to cover up his radical left stances or lie about his medical condition.
Last week, Fetterman finally seemed to relent, agreeing to debate Oz and proclaiming it was “always our intention to do so. However, despite popular belief, Oz said the matter remained unresolved, as there was no formal agreement. On the contrary, his Democratic challenger only agreed to a debate “conceptually”, providing no details for it to happen.
“The is Nope Fetterman debate to offer. He conceptually agreed this you to know, he would have To display at the top at some indicate, but a debate has at be tenuous at a specific time, a specific square, obtained at be on TV stations. Yeswe have at have a host. It is given we nothing of those details,” Oz explained.
“They can not be imaginary and as you sharp outside, I agreed at six very specific debates– Three in September — the second a has been last night he doesn’t To display at the top – and Three in october, an/a I will be do no matter I box at serve the people of Pennsylvania,” he said. “But John Fetterman has agreed at zero debates. [He] doesn’t have the interests at heart of the voters”.
Ultimately, Oz said his Democratic challenger was either trying to cover up a “radical” record or lie about the state of his health. Fetterman suffered a stroke in May. The Democrat openly admitted that he had “auditory processing” problems due to his stroke.
“I think It is dodging,” Oz said Breitbart News Saturday. “Iit is really a problem because you can not have this both manners more. Let he in good health – who he said he is – and wanna at to hide his far left radical registration, Where It is has been lying on his health. Still, I am a doctor. I have huge empathy for How? ‘Or’ What hard this is at retrieve of the challenges of a stroke and heart failure. But this is not on health. This is on honesty.”
“I know that’s a challenge,” Oz said, but he concluded that wasn’t the point, because Fetterman owes it to the people of Pennsylvania to tell them the truth.
“It’s up to John Fetterman to be honest and transparent with Pennsylvania voters to share with them … what he thinks they should know,” Oz said, explaining he’s spoken with senators, including Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA), who said Keystone State must have a senator”who is able to do the job of fighting for them.
“In the greatest deliberative body in the world, the United States Senate. You must be able to express your points of view. You have to understand what other people are saying. And if John Fetterman can’t explain his radical far-left positions, then that’s a concern,” he said, noting that the establishment media didn’t ask those questions.
“Fetterman is proposing a debate some time amorphously at the end of October,” he said, explaining that this is problematic because mail-in ballots are mailed out in two weeks.
“So 20% of people in Pennsylvania can vote with these ballots. They won’t have the privilege of hearing me and John Fetterman fight to ask themselves tough questions,” Oz said, explaining that he hosted 200 campaign events, answering tough questions about the campaign trial. . His opponent, however, did not. Oz added that Fetterman did not respond to off-the-cuff questions about the campaign trail and felt he only spoke for a few minutes.
“I was able to fill in any gaps that people might perceive of me. John Fetterman, for democracy to work, must do the same. He did not respond immediately to a spontaneous question during the election campaign. I tried to add it up, but maybe he spoke for 20, 25 minutes in total for the whole campaign. I mean, it’s – how do you run a campaign without ever talking to anyone? Oz asked, briefly reviewing some of Fetterman’s hardline positions, such as opposing fracking, as well as defending teachers’ unions and socialized medicine.
“These are the kind of far-left wacky ideas that Fetterman comes up with, but he won’t defend because he knows he can’t,” the Senate Republican hopeful added. “That’s why he doesn’t answer any questions, and that’s why he refuses to debate.”
