Sen. Rick Scott: Pa.'s Fetterman 'Lied' About Health During Stroke Recovery

Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., the head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee on Wednesday accused Pennsylvania Democrat Senate candidate Lt. Gov. John Fetterman of having "lied about his health."

Fetterman is currently running against Republican candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz. Fetterman's campaign announced in May that the candidate had suffered a stroke and had to "take a minute" to recover.

Scott said in an interview on the Hugh Hewitt Show: "Fetterman, first off, lied about his health. Fetterman wasn't even on the campaign trail for months. I'm sorry that he's had health problems, but he lied about it. And that right there should be a disqualifying factor."

Scott's comments come soon after reports that the NRSC, which Scott oversees, has canceled about $5 million in ad spending in Pennsylvania, a move that some GOP operatives questioned in light of the upcoming midterm elections.

One unidentified Republican strategist told Politico, "People are asking, 'What the hell is going on? Why are we cutting in August?' I've never seen it like this before."

A spokesperson for the organization, Chris Hartline, denied the reports in a tweet saying, "No, the GOP is not slashing ads in key Senate battlegrounds." He also said that they remain committed "to winning in all of our target states," and must be "creative in how we're spending our money and will continue to make sure that every dollar spent by the NRSC is done in the most efficient and effective way possible."
