Mehmet Oz Crashes And Burns In Pennsylvania As Fetterman Wins Senate Race
The Republican’s hope to retake the Senate majority dwindled down in the early hours of Wednesday morning, as Lt. Gov. John Fetterman defeated Trump-backed Republican candidate Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania, marking the first Senate-seat flip of the election.
Fetterman is now slated to fill the position currently held by retiring Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.).
That victory came on the heels of wins for Sens. Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.), a top target for Republicans in a state where polls seemed to tighten in recent weeks, and Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), whose reelection was called less than an hour after the state’s polls closed Tuesday night.
In Georgia, Herschel Walker and Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock are neck-and-neck in the polls. Warnock is leading in the vote count, but it could be headed to a runoff election in December if he doesn’t reach the 50 percent threshold.
In Arizona, Sen. Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.) is ahead of GOP opponent Blake Masters.
Meanwhile, in Wisconsin, Johnson holds a small lead over Democratic nominee Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes.
Republicans held their seats in Florida, Ohio and North Carolina. But now, assuming GOP Sen. Ron Johnson holds Wisconsin, they also need to pick up two of three remaining toss-up races in Arizona, Georgia or Nevada in order to retake the Senate majority.
