Pennsylvania Democrat John Fetterman trolls Dr Oz with message from Snooki amid Oz’s ties to the state: ‘Jersey won’t forget you’

Pennslyvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman’s campaign has enlisted ‘Jersey Shore’ alum Snooki in its ongoing effort to troll Republican Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz over his longtime ties to New Jersey. .

“Hey, Mehmet, it’s Nicole ‘Snooki’,” one of the stars of the MTV reality show says in the video that appears to be from online service Cameo. She adds that she heard Oz leaving New Jersey to “look for a new job.”

“I personally don’t know why anyone would want to leave New Jersey because we’re all a mess, but I want to wish you well,” said Snooki, real name Nicole LaValle. “I know you are far from home and in a new place but Jersey will never forget you.”

It’s unclear whether LaValle knew his video would be used as a political attack.

Boosted by former President Donald Trump’s endorsement, Oz narrowly won the Republican Party nomination in June. Fetterman and Oz will now face off in November in a race to determine who will replace retired Republican Senator Pat Toomey. The Republicans appear to be going on the offensive midterm, but the Pennsylvania contest will be one of the headline races in November.

Fetterman and his campaign have for weeks beset Oz over its ties to New Jersey and its minimal ties to Pennsylvania. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Oz has lived in North Jersey for more than three decades. He said he moved to Pennsylvania in 2020 and lived with his in-laws. But Oz’s social media posts still frequently showed him in New Jersey.

Representatives for Fetterman’s and Oz’s respective campaigns did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
