Pennsylvania Republican Senate nominee Mehmet Oz loaned his campaign another $1 million, according to federal campaign documents filed Thursday.

Oz, a former television personality, has tapped into his personal finances throughout his highly competitive Senate race. He previously loaned $7 million to his campaign in the third quarter of the year, which ended in September, according to Federal Election Commission records. 

In total, Oz has contributed $22 million toward his campaign and raised roughly $9 million in the third quarter.

Oz’s opponent, Democratic Lt. Governor John Fetterman, raised $22 million in the third quarter of 2022, according to Federal Election Commission records.

While Fetterman enjoyed a healthy lead for most of the summer, the race is tightened in recent weeks.

The contest, which is taking place in a state won by former President Donald Trump in 2016 and now-President Joe Biden in 2020, could determine which party holds a majority in the United States Senate.
