Philadelphia voters shared whether they were concerned about the health of Lieutenant Governor John Letterman if elected to the Senate and whether it would affect their vote in the midterm elections, with some citing President Biden’s health as a guarantee.

“He may not be mentally healthy, but he looks healthy,” said Devon of Philadelphia.

“Look at Joe Biden. He’s an older guy,” he continued. “You know he has his health problems and he’s still capable of running the country.”

But Kevin, who lives in Philadelphia, said he was concerned about Fetterman’s health and the lack of engagement in the campaign.

“You can’t run for office by telling people you’re okay if you’re not okay,” Kevin said. “If something comes up, he should provide some sort of documentation that he has a clean bill of health.”

Fetterman, serving as Pennsylvania’s 34th lieutenant governor, suffered a stroke in May, undergoing surgery on May 17 — the day Pennsylvania voters elected him as the Democratic candidate for the Senate. Fetterman returned to the campaign in August and recently agreed to debate his opponent, Republican Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz, scheduled for October 25th.

“I don’t have a problem with his health, because I still think he’s capable of doing his job,” said Betty, from Philadelphia. She said speech problems are to be expected after a stroke and mentioned Biden stuttering in his speeches.

Loreal, who lives in Philadelphia, said she was less concerned about Fetterman’s health than she was about Biden and older leaders.

Joe Biden became the oldest president already elected to the post when he won in 2020, and will turn 80 in November. Some congressional leaders within the legislature are even older, including Senator Dianne Feinstein, 88, who has shown signs of memory loss.

“We’ve had older people who have had other serious health issues that were certainly a cause for concern, but they’re doing really well,” Loreal said.

In the 2020 presidential election, Philadelphia, a strongly leftist city, was crucial for Joe Biden to win in Pennsylvania. Yet statewide Fetterman only leads Oz, 52% to 47%, in the Pennsylvania Senate race, according to the latest CBS News poll.

“It looks like he’s on the mend,” said Will, from Pennsylvania. “I’ll trust what he’s telling us.”

“Even if he takes a little time while he’s in the Senate to get it back, he’s by far the best option,” he said.
