Washington CNN —
Mehmet Oz, the Republican nominee in Pennsylvania’s US Senate race, has been claiming that everyone he defeated in the party primary has now endorsed him. But that’s not true.
Oz is trying to unite the Republican base after winning the bruising multi-candidate primary with about 31.2% of the vote. In an appearance on Fox on Tuesday, after a host mentioned an opinion poll that showed Oz trailing his Democratic opponent, Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, by 9 percentage points, Oz spoke of the importance of Republican unity and said, “All of the Senate candidates that I was competing against have endorsed me. The party rapidly unifies.”
