A newly-released video might just be the final blow to Pennsylvania Democrat John Fetterman's U.S. Senate campaign.
The video comes from the Republican National Committee (RNC), which posted it on its RNC Research Twitter account.
What is so damaging about the video for Fetterman is that it further calls into question his fitness to be a U.S. senator. Take a look for yourself:

The specific context of the video is not clear, and the same can be said about the point that Fetterman was trying to make.
The Democrat said something along the lines of:
Summer of 1986, I, uh, I think everyone that ever plays how football in, in high school was, you know, at a, kinda like a trade, a trade out kind of, uh, football camp. And, uh, wasn’t, wasn’t there wasn’t any interest. I come play here. You know.
Fetterman is facing off in the midterms against Republican Mehmet Oz in the race for one of Pennsylvania's U.S. Senate seats. The Democrat's campaign, though, has been trending in the wrong direction ever since the disastrous debate that he had with Oz.
Prior to that, significant questions had been raised about Fetterman's fitness for office following the serious stroke that he had suffered. Fetterman's debate performance answered those questions, revealing just how bad of a shape he is in.
Since then, the polls have been trending in Oz's direction. Several polls now have Oz in the lead by multiple percentage points. But, thanks to some outlier polls that favor Fetterman, Real Clear Politics only has Oz winning, on average, by 0.1 percentage points.
Despite Fetterman's obvious fitness issues, President Joe Biden, former President Barack Obama, and other top Democrats continue to pull for Fetterman. It has to be admitted that, at this point, they really have no other option as Fetterman is their only chance to win this crucial U.S. Senate seat.
Clearly, though, things are heading in the wrong direction for Fetterman and his fellow Democrats. And, some are saying that an incident that occurred at a rally over the weekend is a "perfect metaphor" for Fetterman's campaign. Take a look:
