Dr. Mehmet Oz is the newest celebrity to enter the Pennsylvania Senate campaign, but it would be foolish to vote for him without putting him through a rigorous primary. Given his electoral advantages, Republicans should give Dr. Oz a hearing, but they should also treat him with respect he deserves.
Sands’ commercial is maybe the first significant ad campaign by a Republican taking direct aim at Biden’s idea, at least in a critical swing state. The most uncomplicated strategy to stand out in a primary contest is to show your readiness to go on the offensive against the opposing party, rather than criticizing your direct opponents. Former ambassador Carla Sands is the only public worker in the contest, and she has announced a $1 million television commercial.
The announcement of the state’s outcome by The Associated Press at 11:25 a.m. on Nov. 7, 2016, made it clear that Scranton’s son would be returning to Washington. It took four days to count the votes in Pennsylvania, and it was closer than the Biden team had hoped. The Keystone State, on the other hand, came through for Biden, who had identified the state as a lynchpin for his approach from the start.
Pennsylvania was one of five states that supported Donald Trump in 2016 but switched sides in 2020.

Things don’t look good for Biden and the Democrats in Pennsylvania, according to a new assessment of where they stand among the people they need.
According to experts, men of color believe Democrats have taken them for granted and sound like country club Republicans. The study was co-presented with Way to Win, a new Democratic outside group founded after Hillary Clinton’s loss in 2016.
According to exit polls, 12 percent of Black voters supported Trump, while 32 percent of Latinos and 34 percent of Asians did. In Pennsylvania, Trump performed poorly among voters of color, behind by 5 points among Black and Latino voters. Biden signed a $1.9 trillion relief measure into law on a party-line vote and offered a bipartisan infrastructure proposal.
Moreover, Swing voters have been slow to hear about Joe Biden’s achievements. Pennsylvanians in big cities and small villages aren’t buying it. A whopping 71 percent of these targeted voters believe the globe is in disarray, contradicting Biden’s calm-and-steady approach. Since Watergate, Pennsylvania voters have voted against the party’s nominee in the White House more than half of the time. According to a recent survey, Democrats need to improve their voter outreach.
