In a recent political troll, Democratic Pennsylvania Senate nominee John Fetterman flew a banner over New Jersey mocking his opponent Mehmet Öz.

The banner flown over the Jersey Shore read, “Hey Dr. Oz, Welcome to NJ!” and was signed with a heart next to Fetterman’s first name.

Fetterman produced the stunt to highlight Oz’s past residence in New Jersey. While Oz is campaigning to be one of Pennsylvania’s U.S. senators, the former reality show host has been a longtime resident of New Jersey.

Oz only gained Pennsylvania residency by moving into a house owned by his in-laws. In political ads and on Twitter, Fetterman repeatedly pointed out the fact.

In a recent political ad, Fetterman took aim at Oz by stating, “This is John Fetterman. It’s a fundamental choice that we have here. I only got involved in politics to make my town, then Pennsylvania, a better, safer place. He just moved here to run for office.”

“Do you want someone that’s all about North Jersey?” the ad continued. “Look, he’s not one of us. He says he’ll fight for working people. Okay. Hey, Doc Hollywood. Save your money. Pennsylvania is not for sale.”

In 2020, Oz voted both in New Jersey and in Pennsylvania, using his in-laws’ address.
