    This evening I received a gracious phone call from David McCormick and am tremendously grateful for his pledge of support in the fall election.

Now that our primary is over, we will make sure that this U.S. Senate seat does not fall into the hands of the radical left, led by John Fetterman. I look forward to campaigning in every corner of the Commonwealth for the next five months to earn the support of every Pennsylvanian. despite the fact that David McCormick has conceded the Pennsylvania Republican U.S. Senate race to Mehmet Oz, the automatic recount of the race will continue as ordered by the Secretary. The deadline for the defeated candidate to waive the recount has passed, and there is no provision in the election code that authorizes the Secretary to stop an automatic recount once it is ordered. Counties should continue their efforts to complete their recount by noon on June 7 and submit their results to the Secretary by noon on June 8.
