A video showing Republican Pennsylvania Senate candidate Mehmet Oz driving opioid addicts to a drug detox center in Kensington, Pennsylvania surfaced Monday.
In the clip, Dr. Oz is seen in a pickup truck with a number of locals from Kensington, one of Pennsylvania’s hardest-hit areas in the opioid crisis.
Oz – who has the medical credentials to advise folks about addiction recovery – is certainly hoping this act will boost his numbers in the polls. The latest polling shows Oz trailing by five to ten points.
Dr. Oz also flexed his medical expertise when he jumped in to help a traveler who collapsed mid-flight earlier this month, his second airport-related save during the Senate campaign alone.
