Democratic Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman suffered a stroke the weekend before his primary for the state’s open Senate seat, raising questions about how the development will affect the final vote.

He has long been considered the frontrunner of the Democratic primary, with a 31-point polling average over his next closest competitor on RealClearPolitics. J. Miles Coleman, associate editor of Sabato’s Crystal Ball, told The Daily Caller News Foundation it’s unlikely his stroke will erode the lead.

“Fetterman as the Lieutenant Governor, I think he just had more name recognition or visibility than his main opponent,” Coleman told TheDCNF. “Fetterman is the frontrunner … I don’t really see that changing.”

Democratic Rep. Conor Lamb, a moderate, has been the consistent second-place finisher in polling and was expected to be the nominee at the beginning of the election cycle, Coleman said. Despite this, he does not see Lamb taking the lead following Fetterman’s stroke.

“The last stretch of the campaign, I know Lamb has gone dark. He’s not advertising,” Coleman said. He added Fetterman might come away with a plurality, as opposed to a majority, because of the stroke, but did not see a loss as likely.
