The two candidates in Pennsylvania's Senate race spent the weekend talking crime, with Republican Mehmet Oz saying Democrat John Fetterman and Democrats cannot be trusted when it comes to law and order. "When you side with the criminals over law-abiding citizens, people get upset. The folks in Philadelphia have been saying they feel like they're part of a social experiment. These are their words, white, woke people make rules but aren't there to deal with the consequences of them," Oz says. Fetterman claims Oz has no record at all on the issue and is a phony. "Dr. Oz has never done one single issue toward crime. He uses it as a photo op. He shows up and pretends to care," Fetterman says.
