A Key Democrat Is Hiding A Secret That Could End His Career

There are less than 50 days remaining until the midterm election.

Every mistake can be costly.

And a key Democrat is hiding a secret that could end his career.

As American Patriot Daily reports:

John Fetterman, the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, said that he “almost died” from the stroke that he suffered from in May.

Despite suffering a major, and ongoing health crisis, Fetterman has not been forthcoming with his medical records.

It’s so bad that the far-left Washington Post Editorial Board is demanding in a newly published op-ed that Fetterman release his medical records and that his refusal to debate his Republican opponent, Dr. Mehmet Oz, was improper.

Fetterman said that he would debate Dr. Oz “sometime in the middle to end of October,” but has refused to set a date.

“Since returning to the campaign trail, Mr. Fetterman has been halting in his performances,” the Editorial Board wrote. “He stammers, appears confused and keeps his remarks short. He’s held no news conferences. Mr. Fetterman acknowledges his difficulties with auditory processing, which make it hard for him to respond quickly to what he’s hearing. He receives speech therapy — and we wish him a speedy, full recovery — but the lingering, unanswered questions about his health, underscored by his hesitation to debate, are unsettling.

“The Fetterman campaign squandered credibility by concealing from the public for two days after his stroke that he had been hospitalized,” the op-ed continued. “It waited weeks longer to reveal a more complete picture of his medical history, including that he had been diagnosed in 2017 with cardiomyopathy. Mr. Fetterman had a pacemaker with a defibrillator implanted after the stroke. The campaign’s response to questions about Mr. Fetterman’s health is to point to a doctor’s note, released more than 14 weeks ago, which said ‘he should be able to campaign and serve in the U.S. Senate without a problem’ if he takes his medications and exercises.”

Oz blasted Fetterman on being unwilling to set up a time for the debate.

“We keep hearing that the Fetterman campaign is in debate talks with networks,” Oz tweeted. “What networks? He won’t say. What terms? He won’t say. John Fetterman sure has a lot of people speaking for him, but does very little speaking himself.”

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Editorial Board also demanded that Fetterman debate Oz.

“If Mr. Fetterman’s communication skills have not yet recovered sufficiently to effectively debate his opponent, many voters will have concerns about his ability to represent them effectively in Washington,” the local paper wrote. “While he has gamely undertaken more campaign events and media interviews in recent weeks, Mr. Fetterman still speaks haltingly and relies on closed captioning to fully understand his conversation partners.”
