In response to this evening's debate between Lt. Governor Fetterman and Dr. Oz, PFT President Jerry Jordan issued the following statement:
PHILADELPHIA—"Dr. Oz is a lot of things: a New Jerseyan, a TV personality, a fraud, a charlatan, and either a Yankees or Padres fan. But here's what he absolutely will not be: the next Senator of Pennsylvania.
"When it comes to the issues that matter most to Pennsylvanians-- good, union jobs, access to healthcare, fully funded public schools, safe communities-- John Fetterman walks the walk and has policies and plans to back up his campaign promises.
"While Fetterman, who is in good health, is running a robust campaign schedule and sharing facts with voters, Oz is busy filming commercials capitalizing on some of our city's most vulnerable residents, using B-roll footage of people at their lowest moments to score political points.
"The difference between the two candidates could not have been starker in this evening's debate. And it wasn't because of a sound bite. It was because it was crystal clear exactly who these men are at their core, and exactly who they'd fight for as our Commonwealth's next Senator. Dr. Oz is in it for himself and his wealthy pals. John Fetterman is in it to fight for a better, more equitable tomorrow for every single Pennsylvanian."
