(Ben Sellers, Headline USA) With Pennsylvania Democrats threatening to elect someone to the world’s foremost deliberative body who is incapable of stringing simple sentences together, former Pennsylvania senatorial candidate Kathy Barnette is ready to bury past grudges with former GOP primary rival Mehmet Oz.
In an interview with podcaster Tim Pool, Barnette seemed ready to settle old scores and let bygones be bygones to prevent stroke victim John Fetterman from securing a spot in the U.S. Senate.
“I will be walking in, voting Republican all the way down because God knows Fetterman is a hot mess,” Barnette said, as reported by the Liberty Daily.
The far-left lieutenant governor has raised the concern of many—including several left-wing media outlets—after a slow recovery from his May 13 stroke, which left him incapable of conducting a conversation without visual clues that his campaign claims are “closed captioning” accommodations.
Without the prompts, MSNBC’s Dasha Burns acknowledged that Fetterman was incapable of conducting even basic small talk.
Despite Fetterman’s infirmities, Oz has continued to trail or, at best, tie him in polls for the closely watched battleground race, which could play a crucial role in determining the Senate majority.
Some attribute his tepid performance to a GOP enthusiasm gap, with critics accusing Oz of being a RINO candidate.
During a contentious primary, Barnette made an unlikely run as a true conservative, although she was snubbed from receiving the endorsement of former President Donald Trump who, at the behest of Fox News personality Sean Hannity, threw his support to Oz, the former television celebrity doctor.
In her recent interview, Barnette continued to slam Hannity as a “jackass” for meddling in the race, in which she ultimately received 24.7% of the vote, trailing Oz and globalist investor David McCormick, who both received 31%.
“The people were manipulated,” she said. “We were going to win.”
In the leadup to the primary voting, Barnette pledged that she would not vote for either of the two frontrunners.
“I have no intentions of supporting globalists,” she said at the time.
The presence of silent and reluctant Oz supporters is likely to give him the edge, leading to one of the major momentum shifts on or before the Nov. 8 voting should Fetterman’s miraculous recovery fail to materialize.
