The Washington PostEditorial Board is contacting Pennsylvanias Democrat nominee for U.S. Senate, John Fetterman, release a his medical records also to take part in multiple debates along with his Republican opponent Mehmet Oz.
Fetterman suffered a stroke in-may and containsstruggledalong with his words at public events since. He’s got been dodging a debate with Oz, who has focused on six debates. On Monday, thePostseditorial boardcalledonFettermans campaign release a his medical records:
The campaigns reaction to questions about Mr. Fettermans health would be to indicate a doctors note, released a lot more than 14 weeks hence, which said he will be able to campaign and serve in the U.S. Senate with out a problem if he takes his medications and exercises.
Thats inadequate. Mr. Fetterman is asking voters for a six-year contract without providing them with enough information to create sound judgments about whether hes up for this type of demanding job. We’ve needed full disclosure of health records from candidates for federal office in both parties, including Donald Trump and Joe Biden, and we believe Mr. Fetterman should release his medical records for independent review.
Additionally, the editorial board is pressuring Fetterman to activate in several debate with Oz, noting that a minumum of one matchup ought to be before voters start casting their ballots.
Even the Washington Post agreesFetterman must stop misleading Pennsylvanians.
If hes scared to guard his soft-on-crime positions, he should say so. https://t.co/fKg6n2vdsl

The op-ed employs Fetterman, facing criticism from local and national media and his opponent, told Politico the other day he would debate Oz sometime in the centre to get rid of of October but provided no specific details. That is well after mail-in voting begins on September 19.
There is absolutely no Fetterman debate offer, Oz told Sirius XMs Breitbart News Saturday on the weekend. He conceptually agreed you know, hed arrive at some time, but a debate needs to be held at a particular time, a particular place, surely got to be on TV stations. You ‘must’ have a bunch. Hes given us none of these details, Oz explained.
The op-ed follows an identical piece from Marc Thiessen, a Post columnist and former speechwriter for former President George W. Bush, who on Friday,called for Fetterman to debate before mail-in voting begins.
