Echoing Trump, Dr. Oz Declares Himself ‘Presumptive Nominee’ For PA GOP Senate Seat

When the results of Pennsylvania’s GOP Senate primary between David McCormick and Dr. Mehment Oz were too close to call, Donald Trump took to Truth Social to give some advice to the TV doctor he’d chosen to run for the seat before any news of a recount was announced. According to Trump, Dr. Oz “should declare victory. It makes it much harder for them to cheat when the ballots that they just happened to find.”

A statewide recount was triggered under Pennsylvania law because Oz leads McCormick by less than half a percent. Counties have until June 7th to finish a recount and another day to report results to the state. But Dr. Oz, who quickly and fully appropriated the MAGA platform from the Big Lie to the complete opposite of his former stance on guns, did exactly as Trump told him to do. Instead of waiting for the results of the recount, Oz declared himself the “presumptive nominee” in a video he posted to his social media accounts Friday morning.

McCormick’s campaign has asked the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to order counties to obey a federal appeals court decision and count mail-in ballots without a handwritten date on the outer envelope. A lower court has ordered a hearing on Tuesday on the matter.

Trump’s push for specific candidates of his choice is yet another indicator of how they plan to dismantle the American voting system from within. MAGA candidates have been loudly broadcasting their plan to challenge all election results in November 2022.
