Last 2022 midterms: John Fetterman describes impact of stroke as Herschel Walker misses polls

John Fetterman Calls Dr. Oz ‘Puppy Killer’

Polls show Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker has been rocked by a late story from The Daily Beast who claimed to have paid for an abortion for one of the mothers of his children. Mr Walker’s ex-partner has now claimed she had to pressure him into taking the money.

Mr. Walker has lied numerous times about the number of children he has, apparently keeping even campaign staff in the dark. He has also repeated numerous false claims about his past, as well as facing serious domestic violence charges.

The scandal appears to have severely damaged Mr Walker’s standing in the polls, which now show him slipping further behind incumbent Democrat Raphael Warnock.

Meanwhile, Pennsylvania Democratic candidate John Fetterman gave an interview in which he described the aftermath of the stroke he suffered earlier this year, explaining that it “changes everything.”

“It’s not a disappointment. It’s just a challenge really,” he said. “I started very empathically before I had a stroke. But now after this stroke, I really understand, you know, a lot more, in a way, the challenges that Americans face day in and day out.”

Inside the ugliest and potentially most important Senate race in the country

The race that could determine control of the Senate and the direction of the country for at least the next four years was always going to be hard-fought. But even in the throes of Trump-era politics, few could have predicted how bitter the campaign for the Pennsylvania seat would become.

With a month to go until Election Day, the race between Democrat John Fetterman and Republican challenger Mehmet Oz holds the dubious honor of being the nation’s ugliest, and there are no signs the two sides are slowing down.

In the last week alone, one candidate has been accused of killing puppies and the other of lying about his place on the heart transplant list. How did we get here?

Republicans still hope that Americans’ frustration with inflation and the economy, as well as rising crime, will overshadow their concerns about the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization reversal of decision Roe v. Wade.

Instead, Democrats hope to make abortion a centerpiece of the election, but they also hope to brand “MAGA Republicans” as threats to democracy and highlight the January 6th uprising.

AP under fire for Pennsylvania story

The Associated Press found its coverage of the Pennsylvania Senate race contested on social media Tuesday after the paper’s correspondent Marc Levy posted a tweet about black voters and John Fetterman’s campaign — without mentioning that the quote the tweet actually came from a GOP-aligned operative.
