A Trump-backed celebrity doctor’s campaign Mehmet Oz, to run as the next Republican senator for Pennsylvania has come down to a nail-biting conclusion.
Oz, a surgeon best known for his appearances on the Oprah Winfrey Show, is facing a cliffhanger vote count after the party primary. He was neck and neck with former hedge fund executive David McCormick.
The race is being closely watched as a test of former President Donald Trump’s hold over the Republican party.
The contest in this key presidential swing state is one of a number taking place across the country to determine who will stand for office in the midterm elections in November.
The midterms fall halfway through a president’s term in office. They decide who controls the two chambers which make up Congress – the Senate and the House of Representatives.
