Sen. John Fetterman once boasted about being a progressive. Now he doesn’t recognize them anymore.
“It’s not so much that I left the title, the title left me,” said Fetterman, 54, who edged out Dr. Oz in 2022 to help keep the U.S. Senate blue, and once vowed that “Progressive values” were the heart of his political identity.
“Increasingly, [progressives] moved and migrated into some positions that I don’t agree with and I really just feel much more comfortable just being a Democrat,” the controversial Pennsylvania lawmaker told The Post this week during an exclusive sitdown in his D.C. office.
The interview was conducted in the dark, which his staff said was his personal preference.
