The race for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania is tightening as Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz is closing in on Democrat John Fetterman.
Some Republican voters seemed reluctant to back Oz at first, despite the fact that he has been endorsed by Trump, but as we get closer to the race, voters are increasingly backing him and it shows in the polls.
Winning control of the Senate is just too important and people know it.

Poll: Oz Within Striking Distance of Far-Left Fetterman in PA Senate Race
Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz is within striking distance of his radical Democrat opponent John Fetterman in Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate race, according to a poll.
In the Susquehanna Polling and Research Poll released Tuesday, Oz drew 44 percent of the response, placing him just five points back of Fetterman, who sat at 49 percent. The remaining seven percent of respondents were undecided or supported a different candidate.
Oz’s current numbers are on par with a pair of recent polls showing he is closing the gap on Fetterman, who held a double-digit, or near double-digit, lead in several polls in recent months. A Trafalgar group poll published on August 21 shows Oz within five points of his competitor, while an Emerson College poll released on August 25 has Oz just four points back.
In the current poll, Oz is beating Fetterman with independents, drawing 50 percent and 40 percent of the demographic, respectively. Another ten percent remain either undecided or plan to support another candidate.
One of the things that’s hurting Democrat John Fetterman is that he is recovering from a stroke and is not able to speak clearly.
Fetterman struggles to speak at a campaign event.

Fetterman sounds horrible. He's clearly not well and it's so bad that he makes Joe Biden sound like a Rhode Scholar. pic.twitter.com/vcZ5f7GhBo

Some people are even suggesting Fetterman should drop out of the race due to his poor health.
