“President Trump is not Jesus,” Barnette told host Todd Starnes.
Trump warned that Barnette “will never be able to win the General Election against the Radical Left Democrats” has has “not been properly explained or vetted” in a statement last week.
“The people of Pennysylvania have vetted me and I am what they want,” Barnette told Starnes.
The latest Emerson College Poll of likely Republican voters shows Oz got a Trump bump Sunday with 28%, and Barnette with 24% and David McCormick trailing with 21%.
The smear campaign comes as Barnette’s campaign is peaking just ahead of the Tuesday primary.
Oz, a Muslim himself, said over the weekend that Barnette should be disqualified for a tweet from 2015 which said “pedophilia” was a fundamental tenet of Islam.
Barnette told Starnes that she is the real conservative in the race and she looks forward to getting Trump’s phone call on Tuesday night and working with him on Wednesday.
She pointed listeners to her campaign website in a section called “Things You Want to Know” to combat the criticism about gaps in her record.
