Dr. Mehmet Oz, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, made a brief stop Tuesday at a Williamsport company.

Dan Ertel, CEO of Eureka Resources, met with Oz and talked to him about the reuse of water from natural gas operations.

Oz, a physician and former TV personality, is among several Republicans seeking the seat being vacated by Pat Toomey.

He toured the company’s operations along with Ertel’s staff and Eureka personnel.

“We heard about the process Eureka was doing,” an Oz spokesman told the Sun-Gazette. “They represent Pennsylvania very well.”

Oz did not take questions from the Sun-Gazette or discuss his campaign.

A Fox News poll this week shows Oz in a tight race for the Republican nomination in next week’s primary election.

The poll revealed that 22% of respondents said they preferred Oz, with 20% favoring David McCormick, and 19% supporting Kathy Barnette.

The other Republican candidates are Carla Sands and Jeff Bartos.

A recent poll conducted by Franklin & Marshall College showed John Fetterman with a nearly 40% lead over his rivals for the Democratic nomination.

According to his campaign website, Oz is pro-life, strong on crime, the border, and fighting election fraud, while supporting the military and veterans and the second Amendment and ensuring America will become energy independent again.
