(Worthy News) – The closely watched Pennsylvania Senate race received a jolt from its lone debate as Republican Mehmet Oz provided a smooth performance answering policy questions while Democrat John Fetterman showed clear lingering effects from the serious stroke he suffered earlier this year while fumbling his position about a key energy industry.
The debate Tuesday night in the capital city of Harrisburg was defined by two answers from the candidates: Oz on abortion and Fetterman on natural gas fracking.
Oz, a first-time candidate and former celebrity TV doctor endorsed by former President Donald Trump, wasted no time answering when pressed on whether he would support GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham’s legislation for a federal ban on abortion after 15 weeks. [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
Turncoat? Rove Super PAC boosts Democrat Shapiro in Pennsylvania over GOP opponent
A political advertisement from Karl Rove’s American Crossroads boosts Josh Shapiro, the Democratic nominee for governor, over his opponent, Republican state Sen. Doug Mastriano, while at the same time criticizing Pennsylvania U.S. Senate candidate John Fetterman.
American Crossroads was founded by Karl Rove, former White House deputy chief of staff. The group is also linked to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. Crossroads established the Senate Leadership Fund in the 2016 election cycle to help boost Republican Senate candidates upon the recommendation of McConnell, according to the Wall Street Journal.
