When counting started last night the Pennsylvania Senatorial race looked like a two-man contest between Dr. Mehmet Oz, best known as the host of daytime TV’s “The Dr. Oz Show,” and former hedge fund CEO David McCormick.
David McCormick led all night until midnight Eastern.
At 23:35 ET with 95.8% of the vote reporting (Yes, we noticed this was lower than the previous report.)- Dave McCormick lled with 31.4% of the vote, Dr. Oz had 31.1% of the vote and Kathy Barnette had 24.5% of the vote.
Kathy Barnette trailed in third place all night.
Dr. Oz made a speech around midnight saying the race was too close to call. He thanked President Trump and Sean Hannity.
