Lt. Governor John Fetterman (D), a far-left US Senate candidate from Pennsylvania, said he would ultimately support a 2024 re-election bid for President Joe Biden, although he also said: ‘c It’s up to him to decide if he shows up.”
“It’s up to him if he chooses to run, and if he chooses to run, I would absolutely support him. But at the end of the day, it’s his choice,” Fetterman replied during a debate against his Republican opponent, Trump-backed Dr. Mehmet Oz.
When WPXI anchor and moderator Lisa Sylvester confronted Fetterman with poll results showing 51% of Pennsylvanians disapprove of Biden’s professional performance and asked Fetterman if he disagreed with one of the president’s policy stances, the US Senate candidate paused for several seconds before speaking vaguely about inflation. .
“I just think he needs to do more to support and fight inflation. Uh and I believe he can do more about that. But at the end of the day, I think Joe Biden is a good, good dad family, and I believe he defends the union way of life,” he replied.
Fetterman also credited Biden with the “lowest level” of unemployment “in the past 50 years,” even though the rate was also low under former President Donald Trump.
