According to both campaigns, the doctor called Fetterman at 9:30 AM EST in order to concede.

Fetterman, who had a stroke in May, emphasized determination in his speech. He explained:

This race is for the future of every community across Pennsylvania, for every small town or person that felt left behind, for every job that has been lost, for every factory that was ever closed and for every person that worked hard but never gets ahead.
