Just a few days after Democratic Senate candidate John Fetterman struggled during his debate with Republican Mehmet Oz, former President Barack Obama urged residents of Pennsylvania to vote for Democratic candidates in the upcoming midterm elections in November. This message was delivered in the form of a campaign advertisement.
According to the 15-second ad that was obtained by Axios, Obama urged Pennsylvanians that their vote in the midterm elections would determine the future of democracy in the United States as well as the rights of women to have abortions.
“So when the fate of our democracy and a woman’s right to choose are on the line, vote Democrat on Nov. 8,” Obama said.
According to a recent poll carried out by WXPI, the majority of those in attendance at the debate thought that Fetterman did not succeed in winning the election. As a result, Obama is making an attempt to increase support for the Democrats in the state of Pennsylvania.
The audience poll that was conducted after the debate on October 25 revealed that only 18 percent of viewers thought Fetterman won the discussion, but 82 percent said Oz won. Although all of these surveys were done before the debate, the polling aggregator on FiveThirtyEight suggests that Fetterman has a 2-point advantage over his Republican opponent at the moment.
After suffering a stroke at the beginning of May, which kept him from campaigning in public for three months, Fetterman had trouble answering questions and stumbled over his words during the discussion. This stopped him from running for office during that time. A closed captions technology was utilised during the debate to provide Fetterman with assistance by letting him to read the questions posed by the moderators as well as Oz's responses.
According to The Hill, President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will go to Philadelphia on Friday to campaign for incumbent candidate Jake Fetterman. This comes at a time when Democratic insiders are growing increasingly afraid that Fetterman could lose the important contest. According to Axios, President Obama will also be campaigning for Democratic candidates in the states of Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin during this week.
