Dr. Oz Wins PA GOP Senate Primary After McCormick Concedes

Citing no path left to victory, U.S. Senate candidate David McCormick conceded the Pennsylvania Republican primary race to Dr. Mehmet Oz on Friday evening, over two weeks after election day. Oz will face Democrat Lt. Gov. John Fetterman in the general election race in November. Fetterman won the state’s Democratic primary race after having suffered a stoke just days before.

McCormick called Oz during an ongoing vote recount to concede the race and to congratulate the celebrity doctor, he announced. McCormick also said he will give Oz his full support in his battle against Fetterman, calling for Republican voters to unite around him:

“We’ve spent the last 17 days making sure that every Republican vote was counted in a way that would result in the will of the Pennsylvania voters being fulfilled,” McCormick said. “But it’s now clear to me with the recount largely complete that we have a nominee.”

McCormick continued, “And today I called Mehmet Oz to congratulate him on his victory, and I told him what I always said to you, that I will do my part to try to unite Republicans and Pennsylvanians behind his candidacy, behind his nomination for the Senate.”
