Dr. Oz gained his notoriety after first appearing on the Oprah Winfrey show. He now has a show of his own called Dr. Oz and just made a massive announcement.
Dr. Mehmet Oz, is a resident of Pennsylvania, has officially announced he’s running for Pennsylvania’s United States Senate seat as a Republican.
Dr. Oz initially didn’t plan on entering the race, but after GOP favorite Sean Parnell suspended his campaign (after receiving accusations from his wife that he abused her and their children), Oz stepped into the race.
Dr. Oz used Parnell’s demise as a chance to win the GOP nomination and as of right now, his chances are looking good.
I’m running for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania because America needs a Conservative Republican to cure what’s wrong with Washington. I’m a world-class surgeon, fighter, and health care advocate stepping forward to cure our country’s ills. Watch my announcement video now! pic.twitter.com/yLhKsZm9sl

More Details About Dr. Oz’s Political Stances
Dr. Oz mostly supports conservative talking points, but his decades of being involved in the entertainment industry have many voters concerned he’s just a RINO. According to the New York Post, Dr. Oz believes COVID-19’s curve needs to be flattened.
However, he also disagrees with the government’s overreach of forcing mandates and closing businesses. In an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Dr. Oz told Hannity he supports the Constitution and small government.
Dr. Oz is likely to receive a Trump endorsement too, considering Trump named him as part of his presidential council. Not all conservatives are big fans of Dr. Oz; some conservatives dug up an old tweet by Oz which states he believes the CDC should enforce gun control.
In Oz’s tweet from 2018, the doctor encouraged funding to the CDC so they could study the effects of gun violence on the public’s health. Dr. Oz’s tweet is terrifying.
Let’s not forget that if scientists and doctors get together and start saying guns are causing a public health crisis, then the COVID-19 biomedical state seen during the early months of 2021 will be re-issued again.
Hi @DrOz! Remember when you tried to use the CDC to enforce gun control?

Anyone but Sen. Toomey…
The seat that Dr. Oz (and over 22 other candidates from both the Republican Party and Democrat Party) is vying for is Senator Pat Toomey’s seat. Toomey announced he is retiring earlier in the year.
However, he would have more than likely lost his seat anyway after he voted to impeach President Trump for allegedly “inciting an insurrection.” Trump publicly called out Toomey many times and even advocated for others to primary him out of his seat.
Senator Pat Toomey also didn’t advocate or speak out against Pennsylvania state lawmakers for quickly changing state law to allow mail-in ballots, just a few weeks before the 2020 presidential election.
Nowadays, we can no longer just vote for candidates simply because they claim to be Republicans. That’s how Toomey was able to sneak into office. He sided with Democrats this last year more than he did with Republicans.
