In private memo, Fetterman confronts a new obstacle: Getting outspent

E-mail Print PDF
Fetteran being outspentJohn Fetterman continues to lead Mehmet Oz in the polls, but the Pennsylvania Democrat’s Senate campaign is privately sounding the alarm that things could change if he continues getting outspent on TV.

In an internal memo on Tuesday to big-dollar donors, Fetterman campaign manager Brendan McPhillips warned that Oz and his Republican allies are together investing more in television ads than Fetterman and Democratic super PACs that support him.

“I am writing with a wake-up call,” said McPhillips in the message, which was obtained first by POLITICO. “In the last three weeks alone, Republicans have spent nearly $12 million dollars — significantly outspending us and out-communicating on the airwaves. We cannot allow this to continue unabated.”

Fetterman, the state’s lieutenant governor, dominated the Senate contest over the summer, prompting Republicans to grow increasingly anxious about their chances of holding the seat. Fetterman led Oz in fundraising and won headlines for trolling the celebrity doctor over his ties to New Jersey. Fetterman also had the airwaves to himself for weeks when Oz went dark on TV following his hard-fought GOP primary win.
