I have to say… this is one of the greatest campaign meltdowns I have ever seen.
If we had a stronger candidate in this race, John Fetterman would have already been crushed in the PA Senate race.
Instead, it has taken a mountain of scandals to take him down, but Oz is now in this and could pull off a massive upset.
Fetterman has been getting crushed on his prison reform stance.
Even though he is now trying to backtrack, there is way too much video out there of Fetterman stumping to empty out about a 1/3 of the PA prisons, including 2nd-degree murderers.
Now a 2008 comment backing up Obama is biting him in the tail.
During his 2008 campaign, Obama slammed small towns in PA, calling them “bitter” people who cling to “guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them.”
Obama, at the time, stated, “You go to these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them.”
He continued, “And it’s not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
Rather than sticking up for his people, Fetterman agreed with Obama, stating, “It is not patronizing, it is not condescending, it is not elitism.
“We need hope and we need a plan and we need someone who is not part of the system in Washington.”
When Fetterman’s campaign was asked to comment on the remarks made in 2008, his campaign went off, stating, “Seriously, this is all you’ve got left?
“The scandalous news that, 14 years ago, John supported the candidate who won Pennsylvania by 10 points?”
Oz, down by 18 points as recently as August 10, is now within five points in the September 6-12 YouGov poll and within two points in the September 13-15 Trafalgar poll.
Maybe that is why Fetterman’s campaign is getting so snippy!
