The television personality announced his candidacy on Tuesday. While Oz is supposedly running as a Republican, sources tell Pennsylvania's Republicans are perplexed by his decision.

That's why I am running for the U.S. Senate: to help fix the problems and to help us heal," Oz wrote. In a sixty-second video Oz posted on his campaign website, he says, "Pennsylvania needs a conservative who will put America first."
