Dr. Oz is a celebrity surgeon. Oz Announces a Run for a Senate Seat
Mehmet Oz, a renowned doctor, is seeking a new direction in his life. He’s hoping to move from being a television host to a role in American politics. On Tuesday, Oz, 61, announced his bid for the race to fill Pennsylvania’s open US Senate seat.
Oz made his declaration Tuesday on the Washington Examiner website, stating: “During the pandemic, I realized that when you mix politics with medicine, you get politics instead of solutions. That’s why I am running to the US Senate to solve the issues and help us heal.
The Emmy-winning doctor and Emmy Award winner is entering one the most important races to determine control of the Senate in 2022. It is clear that Sean Parnell, former President Donald Trump’s nominee for the presidency, is no longer in the race. This leaves Oz plenty of opportunity to reach out to Trump-era voters.
Although Trump has yet to endorse Oz, the physician formerly served on the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness, and Nutrition and according to an interview Oz conducted with Trump the former First Lady is “a big fan” of the “Dr. Oz Show.”
Oz posted a video of one minute on social media, saying that “As a cardiac surgeon, I know how precious and precious life is.” Pennsylvania needs an independent conservative who will stand up for America, who can ignite our divine spark to fight for freedom and tell it as it is.

Oz’s campaign launch highlights his medical background and lays it as a basis to make Oz an effective senator. “I invented life-saving equipment, taught young surgeons in saving lives, and hoped that my work would be measured by countless others who helped.”
He said, “Sometimes in medical emergencies it is imperative to act swiftly and decisively. Sometimes, we can utilize less invasive medicines to alter the course of. Sometimes, we will utilize preventative health to prevent problems from developing in the first place. We should make use of all our strategies and tools to accomplish the task in society, too.”
