Braddock, PA -- In the final days and weeks before the election, the Oz campaign is still failing to generate enthusiasm for the New Jersey fraud. While Oz clearly hoped his $27 million in self-funding would buy voter enthusiasm, his campaign has been forced to resort to repeatedly inflating event attendance numbers.
A comparison of Oz’s claims around event attendance versus local reporting reveals the following:
These numbers come even with Oz limiting his public events, as he’s only held a handful of public events since Labor Day.
As reported by the Philadelphia Inquirer, Oz’s events have skewed towards “smaller” events or “midsize town halls his campaign organizes, sometimes with more reporters than people.” The same article describes Fetterman campaign events as “large, energetic rallies, branded with themed posters and blaring rock music, amping up a base that already loves him. The crowds are typically diverse in background and age, and many people say it’s their first time attending a rally.”
“We have traveled across Pennsylvania turning out electric crowds in blue and red counties alike,” said Fetterman spokesperson Joe Calvello. “It’s no surprise that a fraud from New Jersey isn’t able to do the same.”
