Trump-Backed Dr. Oz Wins Senate dominant as David McCormick Concedes
Pennsylvania Republican gubernatorial candidate David McCormick has conceded to Mehmet Oz, handing the GOP nomination to the celebrity doctor backed by former President Donald Trump.
McCormick announced his concession before a recount of the election night results—which saw Oz leading by a razor-thin margin of less than 1,000 votes—was completed. Hours before McCormick conceded, a report from The Philadelphia Inquirer noted that the recount had “produced little change in the tally.”
“We came so close to the goal,” McCormick said to a crowd of supporters on Friday evening. “But it’s now clear to me, with the recount largely complete, that we have a nominee. And today I called Mehmet Oz to congratulate him on his victory.”
Mehmet Oz won the GOP dominant for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania on Friday after opponent David McCormick conceded. Oz is pictured with former President Donald Trump at a rally in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, on May 6, 2022.
“I told him… that I will do my part to try to unite Pennsylvanians and Republicans behind his candidacy, behind his nomination for the Senate,” he additional.
