DEBATE DEBACLE? Team Fetterman Sends Email to Press Ahead of Oz Debate, ‘This is Not John’s Format’

Fetterman’s team is trying to manage expectations for Tuesday night’s debate with GOP opponent Dr. Oz. According to an email sent out to reporters, Team Fetterman wants the press to know that “this isn’t John’s format.”

According to The Daily Wire, the Fetterman campaign acknowledged that “this isn’t John’s format,” arguing Oz has a distinct advantage because of his career as a television host. “John is ready to share his vision for Pennsylvania, defend his record, and make the case against Oz,” the message said. “He’s going to be talking about his real ideas to help real people.”

“We are prepared for Oz’s allies and right-wing media to circulate malicious viral videos after the debate that try to paint John in a negative light because of awkward pauses, missing some words, and mushing other words together,” the email continued. “John has had a remarkable recovery, but the ongoing auditory processing challenges are real. The campaign insisted on closed captioning technology because it’s necessary.”

“He is a unique candidate with a strong personal brand that transcends partisanship,” the email added. “That’s what voters are going to see on the debate stage, and it’s why John is going to win this race — even if he doesn’t win the debate.”
