Pennsylvania Senate candidates John Fetterman and Mehmet Oz faced off in the first and only debate Tuesday night in Harrisburg, in the race for one of the most hotly contested seats in the midterm election. The winner could decide the balance of the U.S. Senate.
In recent weeks, polls have shown that Oz has closed Fetterman’s early lead and the race is now considered a tossup. Lt. Gov. Fetterman, who is still recovering from a stroke, used closed captioning during the debate to assist him with some auditory processing issues and Oz has made his health an issue in the campaign.
This hour, we’ll talk about how the candidates performed and what they said about the economy, crime, abortion and more. And we’ll discuss whether the debate will impact voters’ candidate choices just two weeks out from ahead the election.
