But Oz, the former president-backed celebrity doctor donald trumpis still tracking Fetterman, according to poll in the all-important Senate election. Fetterman wants to maintain both his polling dominance over Oz and his huge fundraising dominance in the final weeks of the election.

Democrats want to stick with a very thin majority in the House, where the parties are split 50-50, with Vice President Kamala Harris taking the tie vote.

Biden and Fetterman are scheduled to appear at a reception in support of Fetterman and the state Democratic joint fundraising committee, the Fetterman Victory Fund. invitation A reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer first reported.
Fetterman’s campaign outperforms that of its opponents. Also, outside groups spend more on attacking Oz than they do on Democratic Lieutenant Governors.
Oz announced last week that it raised $7 million out of its own pocket of the $17 million it raised last quarter. Meanwhile, Fetterman touted that he never raised his own $22 million in funding that his campaign raised during the same period.

“Biden Fetterman’s agenda has given us higher prices at the pump and more dangerous streets.
A spokesperson for Fetterman’s campaign did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment on the event.
