Fetterman discusses reproductive rights and health at Montco

Last Wednesday, Fetterman agreed to a debate with his opponent. Oz has been pressuring Fetterman for weeks and aggressively questioning the severity of his ongoing health issues following a stroke Fetterman suffered in May.

Fetterman decided to poke fun at one of his opponent’s notable gaffes while discussing what it’s like to recover from a stroke.

“I want to go to Wegman’s, but I’m actually at Redner’s, but I’ll tell you I’m shopping at Wegner’s,” Fetterman said. “Sometimes I mix two words together.”

Fetterman’s campaign said the debate is expected to take place between mid-October and late October, however, no further details were released. Fetterman took several months off the campaign trail to recuperate and did not start making public appearances again until recently last month.

The Pennsylvania Senate race is being closely watched across the country as it will likely determine whether Democrats maintain their marginal lead in the Senate.

On Sept. 3, former President Donald Trump joined Republican U.S. Senate candidate Oz and Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano in Wilkes-Barre.

FiveThirtyEight currently has Fetterman ahead of Oz in the polls, while Politico currently views the US Senate race as a draw.

Election day is November 8 and polling stations will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. The last day to register to vote is October 24.
