“The Republican primary is not even about Pennsylvania"
The endorsement rush by McCormick and Oz feels like a presidential campaign.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Sen. Ted Cruz and Mike Pompeo all came out early for Dave McCormick. Then, Mehmet Oz answered with support from Sean Hannity and Ted Nugent. After McCormick rolled out backing from Mike Huckabee on a recent Friday, Oz responded with Rick Perry the following Monday and Ryan Zinke on Tuesday. The day after that, McCormick announced he had in his corner Rep. Elise Stefanik, the No. 3 ranking GOP member in the House.
The rolling deluge of endorsements from national figures may seem more suited for a presidential race. But in this case, these outsiders are piling into the Republican primary in one of the most consequential U.S. Senate races in the country in Pennsylvania.
