John Fetterman (D-PA) won the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania to fill the seat of retiring GOP Sen. Pat Toomey. JAC has been a strong supporter of Fetterman and will continue to support him throughout his critical race.
As Lt. Governor of Pennsylvania, Fetterman has been a vocal supporter of women’s reproductive health. Fetterman worked to ensure women’s rights and he will continue to do so in the Senate.
Fetterman has also been a strong advocate for gun reform. After the numerous mass shootings across the country, Fetterman stated that “Enough is enough.” He believes it's long past time for Congress to act. Fetterman promises to support common-sense reform such as universal background checks, a ban on military-grade assault weapons and high-capacity magazines if he is elected to the U.S Senate.
The GOP and the NRSC want this seat to stay Red. They have already booked $67 million in advertising spots for the November election.
A contentious primary has left GOP nominee Dr. Mehmet Oz deeply unpopular. A recent AARP poll found Oz's overall net approval rating at -33, compared to Fetterman's +10. Moreover, the poll also found that Fetterman has almost universal support among his base, only a bare majority of Republicans give Oz positive marks.
This will still be a tough race for Fetterman, who suffered a stroke earlier in the year and has not been on the campaign trail. Oz still has significant support among MAGA loyalists. As a former TV personality, he also has strong name recognition. Biden only won PA by 1.2 points.
JAC will be working hard to help get Fetterman to the Senate. We hope you will join our efforts. His win can make the difference whether we get important legislation passed.
