Dr. Oz’s foray into GOP grassroots politics is a code-red emergency. The celebrity physician known as Dr. Oz has been soundly rejected by party activists in his first three unofficial tests as a contender in Pennsylvania’s Republican Senate primary.
It’s a dismal start for a well-funded, top-tier contender in one of the country’s most critical Senate contests. At 6 p.m., the Pennsylvania Senate candidate will address students in the Sticht Lecture Hall.
Dr. Oz’s Poor Results Stunned Trump
It is early in the election, and Dr. Oz’s competitors and associated super PACs seem to be keen to invest huge amounts of money on television ads seeking to discredit him. Previous President Trump, whose support is crucial in Republican primaries, was made aware of Oz’s terrible performance in the first poll meeting, where Dr. Oz earned only one vote. Trump was very surprised because he anticipated Dr. Oz to do reasonably well due to his celebrity status.
According to GOP members and political advisers, Oz is having trouble with state committee members, in part because his previous statements on crucial policies are returning to bite him.
He has previously shown his position on abortion rights as well as “red flag” firearms legislation.
According to a recent posting by Pennsylvania Patriots Committee, he formerly featured in an ad promoting ex-President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
In November, Oz declared his candidacy. He is a longtime New Jersey resident who joins Republicans Jeff Bartos, Carla Sands, David McCormick, Kathy Barnette, Everett Stern, Sean Gale, Martin Rosenfeld, Bobby Jeffries, David Xu, John DeBellis, Ronald Johnson, and James Hayes in the race.
John Fetterman, Conor Lamb, Malcolm Kenyatta, Dr. Val Arkoosh, Dr. Kevin Baumlin, John McGuigan, Alexandria Khalil, Larry Johnson, Alan Shank, and Llewellyn Tapera are among the Democratic candidates.
