(Reuters) – Celebrity heart surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz paid U.S. law firm Jones Day more than $54,000 for legal consulting in December amid his Republican bid for a U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania, a campaign finance report released on Monday showed.

Oz, host of the syndicated “The Dr. Oz Show,” jumped into the Pennsylvania race in late November, adding his name to what is considered one of the country’s most competitive races. His campaign spent $4.8 million in the fourth quarter, according to the new campaign filings.

The Oz campaign did not immediately return a request for comment on Tuesday, and a Jones Day spokesperson did not return a similar request.

Jones Day has earned millions of dollars in fees as a go-to law firm for the Republican party and many candidates. The firm played a central role in Donald Trump’s 2016 successful presidential bid, and Trump named Jones Day’s Donald McGahn as his first top White House lawyer.

Jones Day’s political election law attorneys work on matters including state and federal campaign finance rules compliance, ethics provisions and advertising.

Oz is among a group of Republicans that is vying to succeed retiring U.S. Senator Pat Toomey, one of seven Republican senators who voted to convict Trump in early 2021 following his impeachment.

Trump has not announced any endorsement in the race, which could decide control of Congress in November’s midterm elections.
