Dr. Oz Has Won Pennsylvania’s GOP Primary For Senate After His Opponent Conceded

June 4, 2022 / Posted by:

Well, Dr. Oz’s dream of becoming Senator Dr. Oz (which is many, many, many people’s nightmare) is one step closer to coming true after his rival, Dave McCormick, conceded in Pennyslvania’s Republican primary for Senate. Politico says that Dr. Oz is now the presumptive GOP candidate for the open U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania and will face off against Democratic nominee John Fetterman in November. And since another TV quack’s political grift seems to be paying off, Dr. Phil’s slimy fingers are probably inching toward candidate registration forms for POTUS 2024.

61-year-old Dr. Mehmet Oz threatened Pennsylvania with a bad time last November when he announced that he’s running for Senate in the state. A month later, the makers of fat-burning snake oil all did the slow wall slide of sadness after one of their biggest pushers announced that he’s ending his talk show, The Dr. Oz Show, after 13 seasons to run for office. Dr. Oz, who was endorsed by Donald Trump, has lived in New Jersey for a while, but in 2020, he registered to vote in Pennsylvania using his in-laws’ address and claims that’s where he lives now. Nothing shady about that! But despite that and Dr. Oz becoming more and more of an embarrassment, he pretty much tied with Dave McCormick in the Pennsylvania Republican Senate primary on May 17. Dr. Oz and Dave McCormick were neck and neck with Oz leading by 972 votes. Since it was so close, a recount is currently underway, but last night, Dave McCormick threw in the towel after realizing that he wasn’t going to close the gap. McCormick dropped out and Oz farted out a cloud of victory. via Politico:

Oz said he received a “gracious” call from McCormick earlier Friday and that he was grateful for his support in the midterms.

“We share the goal of a brighter future for Pennsylvania and America,” Oz said in a statement. “Now that our primary is over, we will make sure that the U.S. Senate seat does not fall into the hands of the radical left, led by John Fetterman.”

Dr. Oz hasn’t officially been declared the GOP nominee because the recount is still happening. It will wrap up soon so an announcement is expected shortly.

So on November 8, citizens of Pennsylvania will have to decide between John Fetterman and a noted quack who is always giving me “smarmy zombie who either wants to eat your brains or sell you weight-loss products or both.” And while many are once again throwing side-eyes at Oprah that scream, “This is YOUR fault,” I’m shaking my head at how out of all the figures in the OCU (Oprah Cinematic Universe), super villains Dr. Oz and Dr. Phil have the biggest platforms. Poor Rosie Daley, Oprah’s one-time personal chef, was left in the dust. #JusticeForRosie!
