Mehmet Oz, the Republican Senate nominee in Pennsylvania, declined to state Tuesday night whether he’d support Sen. Mitch McConnell (Ky.) because the next GOP leader in top of the chamber if he wins in November and the party gains almost all.

During an appearance on Fox Newss Special Report with Bret Baier, the host asked Oz if he’ll support McConnell because the next majority leader if Oz were to win in the Keystone State.

I anticipate being in america Senate and [am] pleased to make that decision for another leader of the United StatesSenate itwill be Republican, Oz replied to Baier.

Nevertheless, you cant ensure it is tonight, Baier pressed.

Not likely to ensure it is tonight, Oz said.

McConnell said last month he has great confidence in Oz despite a slew of recent polls showing Oz trailing his opponent, Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman (D).

I’ve great confidence. I believe Oz includes a great shot at winning, McConnell told reporters.

The Hill has already reached out to McConnells office for comment.

Former President Trump, who endorsed Oz,held a rallyin Pennsylvania on Saturday in order to raise the Senate candidate along with GOP gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano. The former president used the occasion, his first public speech because the FBIs raid at his Mar-a-Lago residence last month, to call out federal authorities and President Biden for a speech criticizing the MAGA wing of the party.

Oz also told Baier earlier in this program that Fetterman is insulting Pennsylvania voters by not disclosing his current condition. Fetterman, who has returned to the campaign trail following a lengthy absence carrying out a stroke, is under great pressure to take part in a televised debate with Oz.Fettermansaid in a statementthe other day thathe wouldnt take part in a slated early September debate against Oz.
