Fetterman Defeats Oz in Pennsylvania U.S Senate Race

Democrat John Fetterman has been projected as the winner of Pennsylvania’s U.S Senate election, defeating Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz in a close race.

Among the first outlets to call the race for Fetterman were Fox News and NBC.

As of early Wednesday morning, Fetterman received 49.87 percent of the vote, according to Decision Desk HQ.

Fetterman’s opponent Oz is trailing with 47.69 percent.

Fetterman’s win represents a Democrat flip in a year considered disadvantageous for the sitting president’s party.

At the time of publishing, Oz is yet to concede the race.

However, Fetterman claimed victory early Wednesday morning.

The Democrat also gave a victory speech in the early hours and thanked his supporters.

Fetterman, his state’s lieutenant governor and the former mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania, will replace Sen. Pat Toomey, a Republican.

The loss amounts to a serious defeat for Republicans.

It complicates the party’s hopes to obtain a majority in the Senate after the midterms.

Results in Arizona, Nevada, and Georgia will ultimately determine the majority in the chamber.

As of early Wednesday morning, Republicans likely need victories in all three states in order to gain a majority.
