Pennsylvania debate or political charade? Voters weigh in ahead of Oz-Fetterman showdown



Dr. Mehmet Oz and Lt. Gov. John Fetterman are preparing to face off on the debate stage in the race for U.S. Senate, but voters Fox News spoke with were skeptical they will hear much more than “grandstanding.”

“I’m not really listening to the charades that’s going on on TV,” Brian told Fox News. “I pretty much watch people’s record and go by that.”

Brian told Fox News he votes based on candidates’ records, not debate performances.

Debates are “just a matter of them stating what people want to hear, and they’re not really speaking from the heart,” Katie said. “Nobody ever accomplishes what they say they set out to do.”
