Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman won the Democratic nomination for the state's open U.S. Senate seat by 59% in the primary on May 17, 2022.
He defeated Conor Lamb and Malcolm Kenyatta.
It is unclear whom Fetterman will face in the general election.
The Republican race, with Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dave McCormick separated by several thousand votes, is too close to call.
John Fetterman's election would help the Democrats hold the Senate.
It is considered one of the key races in November.
To add even more drama to the primary vote, Fetterman suffered a mild stroke on May 13.
He was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, and John Fetterman had a pacemaker implanted and is still hospitalized in Lancaster.
Fetterman has established a reputation as a fierce cannabis advocate.
Both John Fetterman and Government. Tom Wolf supports adult-use legalization in the Keystone State.
However, they have not been able to convince the legislature to act.
