While actor Matthew McConaughey recently revealed that he will no longer be running for Governor of Texas, it seems Dr. Mehmet Oz has different ideas. It seems the famous writer, surgeon and television personality is set to enter into the world of politics.
According to TMZ, Dr. Mehmet Oz plans on running for the U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania. It was said that Dr. Oz has just made a multi-million dollar media buy in the state. It was to push his impending candidacy.
Oz previously hinted at running for the Senate but never seemed all in on the idea until now. It was also reported that he now has a full campaign staff, including Chris Hansen to manage the campaign. Hansen ran the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
Dr. Oz will run as a Republican for Pat Toomey’s seat as Toomey will be retiring. It is likely he will not be appearing on his show in the coming months as he is preparing for his State Senate candidacy.
It was also said that Oz may make the announcement Tuesday night on FNC’s “Hannity.” We will have to wait and see whether Dr. Oz will have a successful run in the political world or not.
