Dr. Mehmet Oz, Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, was unanimously endorsed by the Pennsylvania Fraternal Order of Police. The announcement of the endorsement vote was made during Oz’s campaign stop at the FOP’s annual conference.
“I am honored to be endorsed by the Pennsylvania Fraternal Order of Police. We owe each and every officer who bravely serves our deepest thanks. Throughout my career as a cardiothoracic surgeon, I operated on brave police officers who were injured in the line of duty. And as Pennsylvania’s next U.S. senator, I will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our law enforcement for safer streets and stronger bonds in communities across Pennsylvania,” he said.
Oz said the FOP invited Democrat John Fetterman to attend, but he did not. He said Pennsylvania cannot afford Fetterman’s “disastrous and dangerous ideas” to put one-third of inmates back on the streets, decriminalize drugs, strip police of resources and prioritize criminals over safer communities.
