Oz Makes Fun of Fetterman's Health During Pennsylvania Debate

John Fetterman, the Democratic candidate for the Pennsylvania Senate, announced on Tuesday that he will not debate Mehmet Oz next week, 

Citing his ongoing recovery from a stroke and called Oz's attempts to challenge him to a debate a "farce."

The fight over debates is a time-honored tradition in American politics, with the trailing contender typically wanting additional debates in an attempt to force an opponent into a bad performance.

The state's lieutenant governor, Fetterman, leads Oz by 9 points in the FiveThirtyEight average of surveys, despite being mainly away from the campaign trail since May due to pacemaker surgery.

Tuesday, however, a spokeswoman for Oz, a famous cardiologist known for his daytime television show, called Fetterman a "liar, a liberal, and a coward" 

Fetterman stated, "Today's comments from Dr. Oz's crew made it very evident that they find it amusing to insult a stroke victim."

My rehabilitation may seem like a joke to Dr. Oz and his staff, but it's extremely genuine to me.

He stated, "I look forward to continuing to interact with the people of Pennsylvania as I heal from my stroke and strengthen my auditory processing and speaking."

Next: Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman will not take part in the early-September debate with Dr. Oz.
