DemDaily: The Final Debates of 2022

October 25, 2022

With just two weeks until the 2022 midterm elections, and with early voting underway in 35 states, candidates are hoping to sway undecided voters with their final debate performances.

The most anticipated debate among tonight's four showdowns is between Democratic Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman and Republican television personality Dr. Mehmet Oz in one of the nation's most closely watched US Senate races.

In battleground Pennsylvania, the contest has closed to a statistical dead heat, with Fetterman leading Oz 51% to 49% according to an October 21-24, 2022 survey of likely voters by CBS/YouGov (MOE: +/- 4.0%).
