A recount shows Mehmet Oz, the famed heart surgeon backed by former President Donald Trump, defeated Dave McCormick in the Pennsylvania Senate GOP primary by 951 votes, according to the Commonwealth’s acting Secretary of State.
Oz received 419,999 votes (31.1%), while McCormick received 419,048 votes (31.0%), the acting Secretary of State said in a press release Wednesday night. Vote totals within a half percent (0.5%) range automatically trigger a mandatory recount.
McCormick had already conceded the race last week.
