Fetterman STILL Refusing A 90-Minute Debate

HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa. — John Fetterman is STILL refusing to agree to a second debate or even a 90-minute debate, leading many to question: is it because John Fetterman is too sick to debate longer than 60 minutes or because he doesn’t want to get challenged on his radical record? The Pittsburgh Post Gazette Editorial Board recently acknowledged that the Dr. Oz campaign agreed to a list of accommodations for Fetterman, yet, Fetterman still has not agreed to more debate time:

“Further delays in scheduling a debate between U.S. Senate candidates John Fetterman and Mehmet Oz have raised more questions about Mr. Fetterman’s health, including his ability to communicate and process information…his speech remains halting, and he repeats key phrases like mantras….A 30-minute difference should not scuttle the only opportunity for voters to see the candidates together. One compromise would be to limit debates to 60-minutes but conduct two of them instead of one.”

“John Fetterman is hiding in plain sight. He’s STILL trying to spend as little time debating Dr. Oz as possible and is finding any excuse not to do so. Dr. Oz has agreed to a long list of concessions including John Fetterman’s chosen date of October 25th and a closed captioning system that will cause delays. The least John Fetterman could do is agree to a 90-minute debate or a second debate that happens before tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians cast their ballots,” said Brittany Yanick, Communications Director for Dr. Oz for Senate.
