John Fetterman, Pennsylvania’s current Lt. Governor who is now the Democrat nominee for US Senate, is one of the most radical Democrats in the senate race.
Fetterman is running against Republican nominee Dr. Mehmet Oz in the 2022 US Senate race in Pennsylvania.
Fetterman has been dodging Dr. Oz’s requests to debate since his massive stroke in May.
John Fetterman finally agreed to *one* debate with Dr. Oz.
But it’s a super secret debate.
Fetterman didn’t specify where or when the debate will take place.
Democrat Fetterman told Politico that he will debate Dr. Oz “sometime in the middle to end of October.”
So if he agrees to a debate at the end of October, it will be well after early and mail-in voting starts.
Fetterman also told Politico that his campaign is looking into closed captioning so he doesn’t miss any words as he continues to recover from his stroke.
John Fetterman said he is committing to attending one debate with his Republican opponent, Mehmet Oz, in the closely watched battle for the Senate in Pennsylvania, but his campaign is still discussing accommodations for his auditory processing problems.
“We’re absolutely going to debate Dr. Oz, and that was really always our intent to do that,” Fetterman told POLITICO in an exclusive interview. “It was just simply only ever been about addressing some of the lingering issues of the stroke, the auditory processing, and we’re going to be able to work that out.”
Fetterman declined to specify which debate he will attend or provide an exact date for it, though he said it will “be sometime in the middle to end of October” on a “major television station” in the state.
He also said that the campaign is looking at the possibility of using a closed captioning monitor for the event so that he does not miss any words as he continues to recover from his stroke.
John Fetterman can barely talk after his stroke.
A confused Fetterman was all over the place during his remarks to union steelworkers in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania on Monday.
John Fetterman can barely talk. I hope he gets well, but if he can’t debate Dr. Oz how in the world can he serve in the senate? He should step down immediately. If he doesn’t, no Pennsylvanian can vote for him. They are trying to hide him. He isn’t well. pic.twitter.com/OzXpMjF9EI
