Former President Donald Trump announced his support for Dr. Mehmet Oz on Saturday, a key endorsement in the wide-open Pennsylvania Republican Senate primary.
Oz, who hosted The Dr. Oz Show on several stations beginning in 2009, announced his candidacy to replace retiring Republican Sen. Pat Toomey in November. His show ended in January following his declaration. He is polling behind former Bridgewater Associates CEO David McCormick, although recent surveys have shown a tightening race.
“This is all about winning elections in order to stop the Radical Left maniacs from destroying our Country. The Great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has a tremendous opportunity to Save America by electing the brilliant and well-known Dr. Mehmet Oz for the United States Senate,” Trump said in a statement.
