Pennsylvania Democrat U.S. Senate Candidate John Fetterman once again struggled with a campaign speech when he was attempting to differentiate between DC, New Jersey and his home.
The speech was when Fetterman was speaking to steelworkers in Pennsylvania. During the speech he was repeatedly correcting himself and barely was able to finish with his final thoughts.
“Please understand the stakes in this race. Send me to Washington, D.C.– to send– so I can work with Senator Casey. And I can champion the union way of life in Jersey- excuse me- in D.C.,” he said.
“Thank you, thank you very much, and it’s an honor,” he added. “I live eight minutes away from here, and when I leave tonight, I got three miles away. Dr. Oz in his mansion in New Jersey. You’ve got a friend and you have an ally. Send me to Washington, D.C. Thank you, steelworkers.”

This is not the first time Fetterman has struggled since returning to the campaign trail after suffering a stroke.
John Fetterman today held his second rally since having a stroke in which he spoke for less than 5 minutes.

In recent weeks Mehmet Oz has closed the gap between him and Fetterman in the Senate race. Oz repeatedly calls for a debate between the two, something Fetterman has yet to agree to do.
“I’m eager to put my record and my values up against Dr. Oz’s any day of the week,” Fetterman said. “As I recover from this stroke and improve my auditory processing and speech, I look forward to continuing to meet with the people of Pennsylvania.”
CNN political analyst Michael Smerconish thinks that in the end, Fetterman will have to go out and debate to win the Senate seat.
“In the end, I think he’s going to have to come out and play,” said Smerconish.
“In the end, I don’t think he can win the campaign — Fetterman — by simply running an organized social media or paid media campaign,” he concluded.
