Star of Sopranos and E Street Band Trolls Dr Oz, Pennsylvania Senate GOP Candidate

Stevie Van Zandt, star of The Sopranos and Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, called on GOP Pennsylvania Senate candidate Mehmet Oz to “come back to Jersey where you belong,” in footage released on July 27.

The footage was released by Oz’s Democrat opponent, John Fetterman.

In it, Van Zandt, a New Jersey native, starts the 30-second address by asking Oz: “Whad’ya doin’ in Pennsylvania?”

Van Zandt continued: “Everybody knows you live in New Jersey and you’re just using your in-laws’ address over there”, referring to Oz’s ownership of a mansion in New Jersey’s Cliffside Park despite being registered to vote in Pennsylvania.

Van Zandt told Oz: “Trust me. You’re a little outta your league. Nobody wants to see you get embarrassed. So come on back to Jersey where you belong and we’ll have some fun.”

Oz defended his status as a Pennsylvania resident on Wednesday, telling Pittsburgh’s Action News 4: “I went to medical school at Penn in Philadelphia, went to business school at Wharton in Philadelphia. I married my wife in the house we live in right now in Montgomery County, outside of Philadelphia.” Credit: Steven Van Zandt/John Fetterman via Storyful
