Fetterman dodges question about releasing complete medical records

Democratic Lt. Governor John Fetterman did not respond directly to questions about whether he would release detailed medical records during his debate with Dr. Mehmet Oz on Tuesday.

Fetterman, a candidate for a U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania, this month released a letter written by his treating physician, who said he was recovering well after suffering a stroke in May and could ” work fully in the public service”. Fetterman’s health following the stroke has become a key issue in the controversial race.

During the debate, Fetterman was asked if he would commit to releasing his medical records. The Democrat replied that his doctors believe he is ready to serve.

When a moderator asked him again if he would release his health report, he repeated that “my doctor thinks I am fit to serve” and that’s “where I stand.”

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
