Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate, and Republican candidate Mehmet Oz shake hands prior to a debate in Harrisburg on Tuesday.
John Fetterman, the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, deserves credit — not ridicule — for taking the debate stage Tuesday night, while still recovering from a stroke he suffered in May.
During the debate, Fetterman used closed captioning to help comprehend questions.
He released a letter from his doctor that said, if elected, he would be able to serve in the Senate without problems.
Fetterman has addressed his health somewhat, but he would be better served by being more open and honest about his challenges and prognoses.
These statements are callous attacks more befitting of a playground bully than a candidate for U.S. Senate.
On Tuesday night, however, Fetterman showed that there is a more humane way forward. »
