Oz steps up attack on Fetterman’s health after ‘crudités’ blunder | News

HARRISBURG — Dr. Mehmet Oz is taking a harsher tone in his attacks on health Democrat John Fetterman in their Pennsylvania Senate race, and the famous heart surgeon’s campaign said that if the state’s lieutenant governor had “eaten a vegetable at some point in his life, he might not have had a major stroke.”

And in a phone call with The Associated Press on Wednesday, an aide to the GOP candidate questioned whether Fetterman was “too ill to debate” — a suggestion dismissed by Fetterman’s campaign as Oz pushes for a Sept. 6 televised debate.
