On Wednesday, MSNBC host Katy Tur suggested that Pennsylvania Senator-Elect John Fetterman may be a good Democratic nominee for the presidency someday. Fetterman’s victory over Oz came as a major surprise to many following a debate performance which many labeled as the worst in the history of politics. On MSNBC, pundits were praising Fetterman for his victory when Tur stated “Fetterman, as a nominee at some point for president” could be a possibility. “I know there’s some variables, obviously, but I just, you know, what he did in the super-red, deep-red parts of Pennsylvania and the way that he ran ahead of Biden, ran ahead of Trump, and it makes you wonder about his future” she added.
The televised mental institution of MSNBC is floating John Fetterman as a presidential candidate.

Tur’s co-host Andrea Mitchell also praised Fetterman for making so much progress with voters, saying, “”I spent a lot of time covering this race, and with Pennsylvania politics, going back some decades, and I started my career there, but the fact that John Fetterman did, first of all, so much better with White non-college-educated voters. Better than Biden, better than Trump, so he ran ahead of both of them, but he also, you know, did fairly well in the cities and in the [unintelligible] counties.”
John Fetterman has been widely criticized for lack of transparency over his health and his display during the debate came long after thousands of voters already cast mail in ballots. Fetterman will now go on to serve six years in the United States Senate.
