REALLY? OKAY, PA: John Fetterman Wins in Pennsylvania, Defeats Mehmet Oz for Senate Seat

Democratic Senate candidate John Fetterman has defeated GOP challenger Dr. Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania; as of 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, Fetterman led Oz by more than 1 million votes and will succeed the retiring GOP Sen. Pat Toomey.

From The New York Post:

Fetterman appeared to be flabbergasted by his win as he took the stage for his victory speech, seemingly at a loss for words.

“I’m not really sure what to say here right now,” Fetterman admitted, before adding: “I’m so humbled, thank you so much.”

“I promise not to let you down,” an emotional senator-elect concluded after bringing up his family and reading prepared remarks.

The late-night call in the key Senate race came after Democrats and state officials had been warning for weeks that election results could be delayed for days because of a state law restricting when mail-in ballots could be counted.

Fetterman held a consistent lead over Oz early in the campaign, but the Republican began to close the gap in mid-August after a near-fatal stroke Fetterman suffered in May knocked him off the campaign trail for several months.

Fetterman shared the news on Twitter:

Fox News host Mark Levin shared his thoughts on the Fetterman win on Twitter, saying “Something is very broken in our country when several million people vote to make Fetterman a U.S. senator.”
