Donald Trump urges Dr Oz to declare victory in Pennsylvania before votes are fully counted

Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday urged Dr Mehmet Oz to declare victory in the Republican Senate primary election, even as votes are still being counted in the close race.

“Dr. Oz should declare victory,” Trump wrote on his Truth social media platform. “It’s much harder for them to cheat with the ballots they ‘just found’.”

Trump’s message said he feared Oz opponent David McCormick might have a chance to get ahead as more ballots are counted.

The former president supported Oz in the race and even held a rally for him in Pennsylvania.

Oz currently leads the tally with 413,227 votes while McCormick is close behind with 411,048 votes.

It’s unclear when all votes will be counted in the state, as some counties are still counting mail-in ballots, overseas ballots and military mail-in ballots.

The McCormick Team believes they receive a greater percentage of mail-in ballots than Oz, allowing them to get ahead and win the race.

“Based on the number of uncounted mail-in ballots and the margin by which Dave has won them so far, that’s why we’re confident of victory,” McCormick’s consultant said. wrote on social networks. “Dave is going to win this race.”
