Further delays in scheduling a debate between U.S. Senate candidates John Fetterman and Mehmet Oz have raised more questions about Mr. Fetterman’s health, including his ability to communicate and process information. He has increased his public appearances, but his speech remains halting, and he repeats key phrases like mantras.
To reassure the public, Mr. Fetterman ought to release the full results of his cognitive tests and other medical records, and make his doctors available to the media. Mr. Oz should release his medical records, too.
Fetterman suffered a stroke earlier this year as a result of atrial fibrillation, or A-Fib, which is a condition where the heart beats irregularly.
The editorial also called on Fetterman “step up efforts to debate” Oz in order to show “he’s up to the job.” Fetterman and Oz have one debate so far scheduled for Oct. 25.
“Voters, however, don’t expect a perfect performance from Mr. Fetterman. They understand he is still recovering from a serious medical condition,” stated the editorial. “They’ll cut him some slack, if he’s transparent about his health.”
This is not the first time the editorial board has gone after Fetterman over his health. Earlier this month, they questioned whether Fetterman has “ability to serve” if he can’t debate Oz. This was before the debate was scheduled.

‘I am surprised’ – Arsenal legend Nigel Winterburn questions Ben White’s omission from Gareth Southgate’s England squad
NIGEL WINTERBURN has been left in disbelief that Gareth Southgate omitted Ben White from his latest England squad.
The Arsenal defender has starred this season under Mikel Arteta where he has started all seven Premier League games for the table-toppers.2Arsenal star Ben White was a notable omission from Gareth Southgate's latest England squadCredit: Getty 2Gunners legend Nigel Winterburn has been left surprised by White failing to be includedCredit: Alamy
Despite being a natural centre-back, White has shown his versatility by fitting in at right-back due to the emerging partnership between William Saliba and Gabriel.
But his dazzling form wasn't enough to convince Three Lions gaffer Southgate to include White in his last squad before the World Cup which kicks off in November.
And his absence in the team was felt on Friday night as England lost 1-0 to Italy in their Nations League clash at the San Siro.
The result means that England have been relegated from Nations League A regardless of whether they beat Germany on Monday.READ MORE ON ARSENALARSENAL NEWS Gunners plan DOUBLE Juventus raid for Vlahovic & Miretti, Partey injury BLOW
Speaking to SunSport on behalf of FreeSuperTips prior to the Italy match, Arsenal legend Winterburn was asked if he was surprised by White being left out.
To which he said of the 24-year-old four-cap international: "I am surprised, but I never try to predict what England managers do with players.
"But I am surprised, he was initially in the last squad so if he was in the last England squad, I don't understand why he wouldn't be in this squad.
"Unless Gareth Southgate has left him out because he wants to look at other players.latest arsenal newsFOOTBALL LATEST England RELEGATED in Nations League, Bara 'rushing' to seal Griezmann dealARSENAL NEWS Gunners plan DOUBLE Juventus raid for Vlahovic & Miretti, Partey injury BLOW'Must-watch TV' Fans all say the same thing as Arsenal legend Adams makes Strictly debut'SCARED FOR MY LIFE' Scott reveals she 'briefly turned to drink' to 'drown out' racism

"Ben White hasn't made that many appearances for England, so I would think he deserves a look in, so it's a surprising decision to me.
"Especially when you see some of the players in that squad and the club form they're currently producing.
"But we've seen this with Gareth Southgate, and I've spoken about it on different occasions when we talk about Jordan Pickford.
"People were criticising [Jordan] Pickford and saying he should be left out, but I've always said you've got to look at it from Gareth Southgate's point of view.
"When he's come in and played for England, he's never done anything wrong so how do you leave him out?"
He added: "So, there is going to be a lot of debate over the next 10 days, especially if England don't pick up their form in the next two games.READ MORE FOOTBALL STORIESWORLD OF PAIN Five problems Southgate must fix with England in disarray before World CupMAGIC TUCH England fans call for Tuchel to replace Southgate but Potter remains favourite
"England have dropped off a little bit in terms of performances and what we expect to see.
