The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s editorial board wrote that Pennsylvania Republican U.S. Senate nominee Mehmet Oz has raised “legitimate concerns” about his Democrat opponent, Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, in an editorial published Tuesday.

The Hill reports:

The editorial comes a week after Fetterman announced that he would not participate in a debate with Oz during the first week of September, citing his recovery from a stroke he had in May and statements from Oz’s campaign that Fetterman has said mocked him for having the stroke.

“If Mr. Fetterman is not well enough to debate his opponent, that raises serious concerns about his ability to serve as a United States senator,” the editorial states.

Fetterman told the Post-Gazette in July that he felt “really good” following the stroke and has no “physical limits.”

The editorial states Fetterman’s campaign has acknowledged lingering struggles with speech but asserts that he will fully recover and is taking the necessary steps to do so in speech therapy. It states that a live debate is the best way to determine if Fetterman is up to the job of senator.

Oz has the backing of 45th President Donald Trump, which helped the notable television doctor to clench the GOP nomination to go up against Fetterman in November.

    1. Easy answer no brains. And everyone else Commiejoe has put in none of them were fit for nothing more than scrubbing toilets.

  1. It’s ok if he can’t speak very well – hell Biden can’t speak at all – or walk up stairs – or doen stairs – or ride a as bike without falling down!

  2. My heart and prayers are out to all stroke victims. My brother had a stroke late last December and he is much better than Fetterman. My brother’s cognition is excellent, his memory wicked, and his speech very good. He does slow a bit when he gets tired, which for a stroke victim happens quite easily and without that much exertion. I would not want my brother running for the Senate, or any office for that matter. I think it would kill him, especially if he had to debate. Fact is, my brother would have the sense not to run. That’s the big tell on Fetterman. The damage from his stroke is significant enough that he doesn’t recognize and have the sense not to run.

  3. If Fetterman can’t debate, he can’t run. We had one run from basement already…
    Also should he dress a lil better than he is doing house work?

  4. Fetterman isn’t fit for office after his stroke, he has a hard time, just talking,and he should just step down,and not put people through the trouble thinking he can be a senator,when he is a radical,liberal,socilalist,with no class.

  5. Democrats are not picky as long as you can spew their hate.Fetterman wsill have company in the party in the same condition.Can only spew hate no sane sentences
