Pennsylvania Senate GOP candidate David McCormick on Friday conceded to celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz in one of the most closely watched primaries in the country.
“We came so close,” McCormick said. “Today, I called Mehmet Oz to congratulate him on his victory.”
The announcement came just days after McCormick’s campaign — citing what it called several “abnormalities” — said it would seek hand recounts of selected precincts in 12 Pennsylvania counties as a broader state-mandated recount gets underway.
Oz, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, will now face Democratic nominee John Fetterman in November.
