“North Jersey Constituent” Dr. Mehmet Oz Nominated For Garden State Hall Of Fame, Congressman Announces

Dr. Mehmet Oz was the recipient of Donald Trump’s endorsement in the Pennsylvania race for a U.S. Senate seat, but that doesn’t mean voters in the state — even the MAGA set — are too happy about it. Meanwhile, a Congressman in New Jersey is making sure voters remember where Oz is coming from, which could be a supportive gesture, if the question of his Pennsylvania residency wasn’t already a point of contention with voters.

Oz won his primary by a mere sliver, with 31.2% of the vote compared to David McCormick’s 31.1%. It’s still a win, and he’ll go on to the general in November, against Democrat John Fetterman. The primary outcome, though, cements that his own party isn’t too heavily behind Oz, and polls compiled on 270ToWin indicate that he’s trailing.

One of the issues is that Oz’s Pennsylvania residency has been challenged, and some voters don’t feel that he’s capable of representing them, if his ties are to another state. Accordingly, New Jersey Congressman and Democrat Bill Pascrell has released a statement nominating Mehmet Oz to the New Jersey Hall of Fame, highlighting his residency in the state.

“I write hereby to confirm that my constituent Dr. Mehmet Oz is a member of our North Jersey community,” Pascrell begins, going on to declare that Oz doesn’t quite have the the star power of other Hall fo Fame inductees, like Albert Einstein and Danny DeVito, he still meets the only official requirement and is “as much a New Jerseyan as any of them.”
