Oz Announces Bid To Run
On November 30, Oz announced his bid for the U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania, but there were some concerns regarding loyalties due to his dual citizenship with Turkey.
“I had the privilege, as the son of immigrant parents, to grow up American while staying deeply in touch with my Turkish roots,” Oz said. “I have a great deal of family back in Turkey, I lived there for a period as a boy, and I served in the Turkish military, which is compulsory for dual citizenship.”
Although there are no legal barriers that would prevent Oz from running for Senate in Pennsylvania due to his dual citizenship, political consultant Steve Schmidt tweeted concerns over the issue.
Though he was reportedly not referring to potential legal hurdles, but his loyalties.
