In what was an incredibly tight race, David McCormick finally conceded the Pennsylvania GOP primary election to Dr. Mehmet Oz on Friday.
“It’s now clear to me with the recount now largely complete that we have a nominee,” McCormick said at a campaign party at a Pittsburgh hotel. “Tonight is really about all of us coming together.”
McCormick called Oz to conceded the race and congratulate the nominee.
“This evening I received a gracious phone call from David McCormick and am tremendously grateful for his pledge of support in the fall election,” Oz said in a statement Friday night.
“Now that our primary is over, we will make sure that this U.S. Senate seat does not fall into the hands of the radical left, led by John Fetterman. I look forward to campaigning in every corner of the Commonwealth for the next five months to earn the support of every Pennsylvanian,” said Oz.

Oz will now face off against progressive Democrat Lt. Gov. John Fetterman in November in what is expected to be a hotly contested election as both parties look to take control of the closely divided Senate.
Fetterman, 52, secured the Democratic nomination just days after suffering a stroke last month, defeating the US Rep. Conor Lamb and state Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta on Tuesday to advance to November’s general election.
