Another surprise in an October which has been full of them. Everett Stern, who is on the Pennsylvania ballot for the U.S. Senate race, and who has been polling at 3%, has dropped out.
He’s asking followers to vote for John Fetterman.
U.S. Senate Announcement: I am polling around 3% which places Democracy at risk. In the interest of protecting the United States I am dropping out of the U.S Senate Race in PA. I fully endorse John Fetterman. The Democrats must win. PA must be Blue. It has been an honor running.

I have to admit, I’m feeling a bit faint right now. I’m not used to seeing too much selflessness in public life.
This gesture, coupled with the Fetterman/Oz debate scheduled for this evening, could be a last minute game changer.
Three percent is a lot in terms of political capital, and especially at this time in a race as hotly contested as this one.
