(RepublicanWire.org) – The final push for the midterms was underway in Pennsylvania Saturday as the commonwealth remained one of the top battlegrounds for control of the Senate with Republican candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz in a tight race with Fetterman. As part of the last ditch effort to garner votes, Obama traveled with the struggling Democrat, but the optics only emphasized the life support the campaign was relying on.
“Today Dr. Oz is gonna be standing with Donald Trump on the stage,” Fetterman said of the dueling rallies across the Keystone State, “and I’m gonna be proud to be standing with a president that is a hundred percent sedition free.”
No sooner had the statement left the candidates mouth, the wind picked up and toppled the backdrop of American flags behind the stage. After RNC Research posted a clip of the event with the caption, “John Fetterman’s rally is off to a great start…” Donald Trump Jr. shared the video and called the incident, “The perfect metaphor for Fetterman’s campaign.”
The New York Post’s Miranda Devine suggested there was something bigger at play and that “God has had enough!!”
She wasn’t alone in suspecting as Democrats campaign on abortion and corrupting and mutilating children that the Almighty may have making a point about the left’s platform. Ian Miles Cheong wrote,”Someone up there doesn’t like it when Fetterman tells lies.”
Similarly, Jack Posobiec drew attention to the imagery from a nearby Save America rally featuring Republican gubernatorial candidate state Sen. Doug Mastriano and former President Donald Trump where a rainbow had appeared in Latrobe, PA about 35 miles away from the Democrats. He opined, “Signs and portents.”
Polling in Pennsylvania leading into the final weekend before the midterm showed Oz with a slight lead over Fetterman within the margin of error and still below the 50 percent threshold as nearly four percent remain undecided. As such, the weight of optics before Tuesday looms large and all of the momentum looks to be favoring Republicans in Pennsylvania following the train wreck that was the one and only debate between the candidates.
“What a visual for a sunken candidate,” Club for Growth Vice President of Government Affairs Scott Parkinson wrote as Peter Towey of Targeted Victory suggested, “John Fetterman’s lead fell faster then the flags.”
