Democrat Pennsylvania Senate candidate and Lt. gov. John Fetterman has not formally offered to participate in a debate, Dr. Mehmet Oz, the Republican Senate nominee in Pennsylvania, told Breitbart News Saturdayassuming his challenger is either trying to cover up his radical left views or lying about health status.
Last week, Fetterman finally appeared to succumb, agreeing to debate Oz, declaring that it was “always our intention to do that.” However, despite what many people think, Oz said the matter has not been resolved as there is no formal agreement of any kind. Rather, his Democratic challenger has only agreed to a “conceptual” debate, with no details to make it happen.
“Over there is no Fetterman debate offer. He conceptual agreed That you know, he would show upwards Bee some point, but a debate has until to be held Bee a specifically time, a specifically Place, got until to be On TV stations. Yor to have until to have a host. He is given U.S no from That details,” explains Oz.
“She can not to be imaginary and as you orphan off, I have agreed until six terribly specifically debates– three in September — the second a used to be last night he not done show upwards – and three in october, and l shall to do whatever l can until serve the people from Pennsylvania,” he said.But John Fetterman has agreed until zero debates. [He] not to have the interests Bee heart from the voters.”
Ultimately, Oz said his Democrat challenger is either trying to cover up a “radical” record or lying about his health status. Fetterman suffered a stroke in May. The Democrat has openly admitted that he… “auditory processing” problems due to his stroke.
“L think He is dodge,” Oz told Breitbart News Saturday. “Lit is For real a issue because you can not to have the both manners not anymore. either he’s healthy – which he say he is – and want until hide to be far left radical file, or He is been to lie about to be Health. Again, I’m a doctor. l to have enormous Empathy in front of how difficult the is until to recover from the challenges from a heart attack and heart failure. But this one is not about Health. This one is about honesty.”
“I know it’s a challenge,” Oz said, but concluded it doesn’t matter, since 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 that he has spoken with senators, including Senator Pat Toomey. (R-PA), who said Keystone State must have a senator”who is able to fight for them.”
“In the largest consultative body in the world, the US Senate. You must be able to express your opinion. You have to understand what others are saying. And if John Fetterman can’t explain his far-left radical views, then that’s a concern,” he said, noting that the mainstream media has not asked these questions.
“Fetterman is offering an amorphous debate at the end of October,” he said, explaining that this is problematic as the absentee ballots are sent out within two weeks.
“So 20 percent of the people in Pennsylvania are allowed to vote with those ballots. They won’t have the privilege of hearing me and John Fetterman compete to ask each other tough questions,” said Oz, explaining that he’s run 200 campaign events and answered tough campaign trial questions. His opponent, however, does not. Oz added that Fetterman hasn’t answered any spontaneous questions about the campaign trail and estimates he’s only spoken for a handful of minutes.
“I have been able to address any shortcomings that people may perceive of me. John Fetterman, for democracy to work, must do the same. He did not answer a spontaneous question on the campaign path. I tried to add it up, but maybe he spoke for 20, 25 minutes the entire campaign. I mean, it’s — how do you campaign and never talk to anyone?” Oz asked, briefly going through some of Fetterman’s radical stances, like countering fracking, as well as championing teacher unions and socialized medicine.
“These are the kind of bizarre far-left ideas that Fetterman is offering, but he won’t defend because he knows he can’t,” added the hopeful Republican Senate. “That’s why he doesn’t answer questions and that’s why he refuses to debate.”
