“When speaking, Fetterman has shown difficulty articulating his thoughts or maintaining long sentences.”
In the race for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, Democrat John Fetterman is leading Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz despite not being very visible on the campaign trail. The Real Clear Politics average of polls has John Fetterman up by 6.5 points.
Fetterman is embracing the Biden strategy of remaining invisible, and so far, it’s working for him.
Democrats are defending the strategy.
FOX News reported:
Dems defend Pennsylvania Senate candidate Fetterman’s lack of public appearances, debates
Democrats are waving off concerns about Pennsylvania Senate candidate John Fetterman’s health after his recent stroke.
The Democratic nominee has shunned the press and avoided lengthy speeches since returning to the campaign trail. When speaking, Fetterman has shown difficulty articulating his thoughts or maintaining long sentences.
Fetterman now says he will debate Republican candidate Mehmet Oz, though no final details have been agreed upon.
“Listen, Fetterman doesn’t need to debate him right now,” Sen. Jeanne Shaheen told told Politico on Thursday. “Because he’s ahead. It’s still early. I think, ultimately, he will [debate].”
She added, “And why should he help Oz’s campaign? Why does he need to do it now?”
Fetterman, currently lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania, suffered a stroke in mid-May, and his campaign announced he had gone into surgery on May 17 — the day voters selected him as the Democratic nominee for Senate in Pennsylvania. His camp maintains that he is perfectly capable of continuing the campaign.
It’s easy to understand why Fetterman’s campaign doesn’t want him to speak publicly. It’s painful to listen to him.

In case, you had any doubt about how far left Fetterman is, he is holding a pro-abortion event today (9/11) with a ‘defund the police’ activist. Democrats clearly think abortion is a winning issue for them.
Chuck Ross reports at the Washington Free Beacon:
Fetterman To Hold Pro-Abortion Rally on 9/11 With Anti-Cop Activist
Pennsylvania Democrat John Fetterman is holding a campaign event on Sunday, September 11, though not to commemorate the anniversary of the terrorist attacks. Instead, the Senate hopeful is holding a pro-abortion rally alongside an activist who supports the movement to defund police.
The “Women for Fetterman” event is aimed at showcasing the candidate’s support for “reproductive freedom” in the wake of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Fetterman, who has said he does not support any limits on abortion, will appear with female lawmakers and Planned Parenthood president Alexis McGill Johnson. The pro-abortion group has said it “supports efforts to defund and divest from the police” because of their “continued militarization and brutal treatment of Black people.” McGill Johnson said in September 2020 that “we must keep demanding change, including the call to defund the police.”…
Fetterman’s coordination with an organization that supports the defund movement comes as he faces intense scrutiny over his progressive criminal justice reform policies. Republican candidate Mehmet Oz has hammered Fetterman over his call to release up to one-third of inmates from Pennsylvania jails. As head of Pennsylvania’s Board of Pardons, Fetterman has voted to free killers convicted of first-degree murder, often over the wishes of victims’ families.
Fetterman has agreed to one debate with Oz, but the agreement includes no details, and Fetterman wants the debate to happen in October, long after early voting begins.
There is no John Fetterman debate offer. Debates have to be held at a specific time and specific place. They have to have a host; you have to have a TV station. We don't have any of these details.https://t.co/CGNk6S8Ex6

In case you haven’t seen it, I will leave you with this monologue Tucker Carlson did about Fetterman earlier this week. It’s a stunning examination of Fetterman’s history and record as a public servant. Watch the whole thing. It’s positively jaw-dropping.DONATE
