Dr. Mehmet Oz, best known for his TV program The Dr. Oz Show, has announced that he is running for US Senate in Pennsylvania as a Republican. This is someone who has promoted all sorts of quack cures including homeopathy, hydroxychloroquine for COVID, and green coffee bean extract for weight loss. Dr. Oz promoted energy therapies of various kinds, has been supportive of faith healing, kowtowed to psychic communication, and much more. Unfortunately, he has a real shot at winning this Senate seat and in so doing handing control of the entire body over to the Republican Party. Incumbent Republican Pat Toomey has announced that he is not going to be running for reelection making this a highly contested seat in what has become a purple state in recent years. On the Democratic side, Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman is running and he may provide the best chance for Dems to keep control of the Senate. If just one of these blue-controlled seats in the country turn red, then winning this contest in Pennsylvania will be imperative for Democrats to maintain control. It would be a crazy reality if Republicans take the Senate in 2022 as a result of Dr. Oz, but wackier things have happened in recent political memory.
