On Saturday night, President Trump held a massive rally in Pennsylvania in support of GOP candidates Mastriano for governor and Dr. Mehmet Oz for US Senate.
Both candidates are looking at competitive races in the Keystone State.
On Tuesday, Dr. Mehmet Oz told reporters Tuesday he would not have contested the 2020 election results from Pennsylvania if he would have been in the Senate at the time.
.@VaughnHillyard: “If you had been in the Senate on Jan. 6, would you have objected to the certification of the 2020 election?”
Oz: “I would not… By the time the delegates & those reports were sent to the Senate, our job was to approve it, which is what I would have done.” pic.twitter.com/Tgnz0t0YY2

This was a slap in the face to Trump voters and the state.
Donald Trump won Pennsylvania by 790,000 votes on election night in 2020.
Then Democrats locked the doors on the counting rooms, manufactured over a million votes, and stole the election for Joe Biden.
Unfortunately, Dr. Oz is fine with this.
He won’t feel that way on election night and the days after — when Democrats will no doubt do it again this year.
Apparently, Dr. Oz is also OK with Pennsylvania lawmakers and not the legislature making the election rules in the state.
Although Dr. Oz would be better than the communist Fetterman, it’s clear he will be another RINO vote for Mitch McConnell in the US Senate.
Dr. Mehmet Oz tried to have it both ways with Donald Trump by saying he wouldn’t have impeached the former president over January 6th, but also that he would not have contested Trump’s 2020 election defeat.
Oz held a news conference alongside Pat Toomey (R) on Tuesday as he continues his campaign to replace the outgoing Pennsylvania senator. After Oz bashed his Democratic opponent, Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, over his refusal to meet him on the debate stage, NBC’s Vaughn Hillyard asked Oz: “If you had been in the U.S. Senate on January 6, 2021, would you have objected to the certification of the 2020 election and Joe Biden’s win?”
“I would not have objected to it,” said Oz. “By the time the delegates and those reports were sent to the U.S. Senate, our job was to approve it, which is what I would have done.”
Hillyard then brought up the fact that Toomey was one of the seven Republican senators who broke party ranks by voting to convict Trump for incitement of insurrection after his supporters violently mobbed the Capitol. Asked if he supported Toomey’s vote for Trump’s impeachment, Oz answered “I would not have voted in favor of impeaching President Trump. I think the President was already leaving office by then.”
