The results of Pennsylvania’s Republican primary race for an open U.S. Senate seat are too close to call. When polls closed on Tuesday, Dr. Mehmet Oz, the celebrity heart surgeon endorsed by former President Donald Trump, was neck and neck with former hedge fund manager David McCormick.
“So, we’re not going to have a result tonight. When all the votes are tallied, I am confident we will win,” Oz told supporters.
McCormick also sounded confident after the election. “We can see victory ahead, and it’s all because of you,” said McCormick.
The winner will face off against John Fetterman. The state’s lieutenant governor won the Democratic nomination for Senate, despite undergoing an urgent heart procedure following a stroke last week.
