Pennsylvania U.S. Senate candidate John Fetterman on Friday suggested that his Republican opponent Mehmet Oz should resign from the race after Oz gave a speech at a museum within sight of former Nazi dictator Adolph Hitler's automobile.

Fetterman made the insinuation on Twitter on Friday evening, posting a photograph of Oz giving a speech at the Lyon Air Museum in Santa Ana, California, where the GOP candidate was taking part in a fundraiser. 

"I don't know who needs to hear this, but if you're asking donors for money in front of Hitler’s literal car, then you shouldn't be running for U.S. Senate," Fetterman said in the tweet, linking to a post from the feminist website Jezebel. 

The Lyon Air Museum is an aircraft and automobile museum with a large collection of World War II equipment and memorabilia.

The fundraising event was organized by Palmer Luckey, a U.S. tech innovator known for founding the virtual reality company Oculus VR. Luckey is also the brother-in-law of Florida GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz.
