Trump Endorses Dr. Oz In Pennsylvania Senate Race

'Pennsylvania has a tremendous opportunity to Save America by electing the brilliant and well-known Dr. Mehmet Oz,' said Trump

On Saturday, Former President Trump endorsed Dr. Mehmet Oz for the U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania.

The endorsement of the long-time television host was announced on Twitter by Trump spokesperson Liz Harrington. 

“The Great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has a tremendous opportunity to Save America by electing the brilliant and well-known Dr. Mehmet Oz for the United States Senate,” Trump said. “I have known Dr. Oz for many years, as have many others, even if only through his very successful television show. He has lived with us through the screen and has always been popular, respected, and smart.”

Trump stated that he was giving his “Complete and Total endorsement” to Oz for his stance on crime, abortion, the Second Amendment, border security, education, energy independence, and “election fraud.”

“Women, in particular, are drawn to Dr. Oz for his advice and counsel,” Trump added. “I have seen this many times over the years. They know him, believe him, and trust him.”

Oz said the following in response to Trump’s endorsement in a statement on Saturday:

“President Trump carefully reviewed all of the candidates for U.S. Senate. Everyone, especially David McCormick – a pro-China, Wall Street insider, wanted this endorsement. But President Trump wisely endorsed me because I’m a Conservative who will stand up to Joe Biden and the woke Left. President Trump knows how critical it is to change the kinds of people we send to Washington. I’m ready to fight. I thank him for that, and I am proud to receive his endorsement.”

Oz, 61, declared he was running for Senate last November in an op-ed published in the Washington Examiner.

Oz and David McCormick, a former Hedge Fund CEO, are the top Republicans in the Pennsylvania senate race. Recent polls had Oz and McCormick neck and neck in the Republican primary scheduled for May 17.
