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.
John Fetterman has only made a few brief public appearances since his stroke in May.
Fetterman can barely string a sentence together after his massive stroke which is why he’s refusing to debate Dr. Oz.
In a statement issued Tuesday, Fetterman said he would not accept the invitation by TV station KDKA for the September 6 debate, saying, “As I recover from this stroke and improve my auditory processing and speech, I look forward to continuing to meet with the people of Pennsylvania. They’ll always know where I stand.”
Fetterman lashed out at Oz after MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle asked him if he’s going to debate his opponent.
“Again, as I just said, this is just a sad approach at this point because they are trying to not focus on the condition of their campaign…” Fetterman said with his wife (handler) by his side.
Last week Fetterman spoke gibberish after a GOP tracker asked him if he’s afraid to debate Dr. Oz.
“Hey John! Are you afraid to debate Dr. Oz?” a GOP tracker asked Fetterman.
“Huh?” Fetterman replied.
“Are you afraid to debate Dr. Oz? Are you going to debate him? He’s offered five debates? Are you going to debate him?
Fetterman mumbled something unintelligible and walked away.
It’s been 17 days since Doctor Oz challenged Fetterman to 5 debates, and STILL no response.
