PA recount shows Oz won GOP Senate primary by fewer than 1,000 votes

A The Pennsylvania Republican Senate recount confirmed that Dr. Mehmet Oz won the party’s nomination by 951 votes, narrowly defeating David McCormick.

The results of the recount, which was automatically triggered when the May 17 contest tally showed a difference of less than half a percentage point, comes after McCormick had already conceded the race. Oz received 419,999 votes to McCormick’s 419,048.

“I commend all of the county’s poll workers and volunteers for their hard work and dedication over the past few weeks,” Acting Secretary of State Leigh Chapman said in a statement on Wednesday. “They began by processing millions of ballots from the May 17 primary, and then smoothly recounted those ballots while millions of people eagerly awaited the results.”

McCormick conceded the election to Oz last Friday and pledged his support in helping Oz elect Democratic nominee Lt. gov. Defeating John Fetterman in the November general election.

Oz, who was backed by former President Donald Trump, accepted the concession and thanked McCormick for his support going forward.

“I received a lovely phone call from David McCormick and I am extremely grateful to him for his pledge of support in the autumn elections. We share the goal of a brighter future for Pennsylvania and America,” said Oz tweeted Friday. “Now that our primary is over, we will make sure this US 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 over the next five months, earn the support of all Pennsylvanians.”
