HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa. — It’s official, John Fetterman is dodging the WFMZ-TV and Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce Debate on September 9th. As of today, the debate is canceled by the hosts.
Weeks ago, the Fetterman and Oz campaigns were both invited to participate in a debate hosted by WFMZ-TV and the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce. The Doctor Oz campaign accepted the debate invitation and set zero terms for this debate, while John Fetterman refused to accept the invitation.
“First, John Fetterman’s campaign lied about wanting to debate Dr. Oz based on some secretive ‘terms’ that they won’t share with anyone. Now, John Fetterman says he won’t debate Doctor Oz ‘in the first week of September’. That’s another lie. He won’t debate Doctor Oz at all, and we all know it. The WFMZ & Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber debate makes TWO debates that Fetterman is ducking. So now we have two lies AND two ducked debates. We thought John Fetterman was a big tough guy, so what is he so afraid of? Is he afraid of defending his radical record of releasing murderers back on the streets? Let us know, John,” said Brittany Yanick, Communications Director for Dr. Oz for Senate.
