This is low even for repugs. Fetterman should just say no.
Mehmet Oz formally challenged John Fetterman to five Pennsylvania Senate debates Friday, an opening salvo designed to help the Republican catch up with the Democratic front-runner and indirectly highlight his health as he recovers from a stroke.
Oz, the celebrity TV doctor, made sure to time his debate demand to coincide with Fettermans first public rally since he was debilitated by a stroke May 15, two days before the states primary. Fetterman, the states lieutenant governor, was hospitalized for days and temporarily lost his ability to speak fluidly.
Since then, Fetterman has maintained a sizeable lead in the polls, outspending Oz on TV and earning favorable media coverage for his campaigns clever use of social media, at one point featuring "Jersey Shore" reality TV star Snooki to mock Ozs out-of-state roots. Fetterman's campaign also slowly reintroduced the candidate to his followers by releasing highly edited videos with multiple cuts, which Republicans said purposefully disguised the speech problems Fetterman has acknowledged he developed as a result of the stroke.
