In political news, today is the final full day of campaigning ahead of Tuesday’s closely watched primary races in Pennsylvania. On Friday, Pennsylvania’s Democratic Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman, who is running for Senate, suffered a stroke but said he is on his way to full recovery. Meanwhile, in the Republican Senate race, polls show a tight three-way race between television doctor Mehmet Oz, who was endorsed by Donald Trump; hedge fund executive David McCormick; and far-right Republican Kathy Barnette, who has soared in polls in recent weeks. Over the weekend, Barnette and Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano banned reporters from campaign events. Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Will Bunch described the ban as part of a “dramatic escalation in the war on a free press in America.”
In other political news, Democratic Senator Chris Van Hollen of Maryland suffered what he called a “minor stroke” on Sunday.
