GOP Senate Candidates to Debate at Grove City

Tonight could be the final time that we have the opportunity to see the Republican candidates for U.S. Senate on the debate stage together.

The debate will be held at Grove City College, located about an hour north of Pittsburgh, beginning at 8 p.m. and will be televised by Newsmax.

Mehmet Oz, the celebrity surgeon, and Dave McCormick, the former hedge fund CEO, will both be in attendance, as will conservative commentator Kathy Barnette, former ambassador Carla Sands and businessman Jeff Bartos.

Greta Van Susteren will serve as the moderator, while KDKA radio host Rick Dayton will also participate.

Oz and McCormick have led the race, according to recent polls, and this may be the last chance to make their case to a large audience. It is also most likely the final opportunity for the remaining three candidates to make a dent in their deficits and rally support.

Last time the quintet met in Harrisburg, the dominant theme was that of former president Donald Trump’s endorsement of Oz. Whether it was Oz repeatedly mentioning the endorsement or the others making their case as the “America First” candidate, the subject was regularly put front and center.

Tonight, it will be abortion rights, following the leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion on the future of Roe v. Wade.

While the opinion of a U.S. Senator will not have the same impact on the Keystone State as that of the governor, Pennsylvanians will still want to hear the candidates’ stances straight from them vs. a TV ad.

As a “#notOz campaign begins to emerge from Republican leaders in the state, it will also be interesting to hear the other contenders stake their position as the option to those who are tired of the Oz-McCormick show. Barnette and Sands may provide some fireworks, while Bartos will try to make headway with his “Main Street” message.

  1. SCOTUS bum Breyer says a teenage girl raped by her uncle should be forced to carry fetus to term, even if tests show it will be born mentally deficient and giving birth could kill the mother. But then, Dems will refuse to support this poor girl or the moron child.

  2. By the time November rolls around and the Illegitimate Court issues it’s decision undoing Roe v Wade, 90% of women will be voting Democrat.

    1. Huck…It won’t be just women voting Dem. This is a tsunami of politics. Turns off year elections on its head. It’ll never happen again. Revolutionary. Dem vote will double beyond normal amounts. Men will increase in voting for Dems.

      1. Pro-life women will step up for the GOP! I think you call these women the “Stepford Wives”. One thing for sure, I never saw an ugly one.
