J.D. Vance backed by Trump wins Ohio GOP Senate primary

view original post
Trump endorsed candidate J.D Vance has won Ohio’s GOP Senate Primary nomination. It was the first contest in the Senate this year, testing his endorsement. Most candidates raced toward Donald Trump.

Mike DeWine, Ohio’s Gov., won the marquee race of the GOP gubernatorial primary. He beat challengers from the right flank.

Vance got a call from Trump congratulating him as the former President of the United States monitored the elections with his aides and friends at Mar-a-Lago. One of them was relieved by Vance’s win as he came from behind.

Vance had Trump’s endorsement, which created a lot of momentum for him. It is believed that it led to a roughly doubling of his support. Vance appreciated Trump and thanked him in his victory speech. He said that Trump showed the country what could happen when he pointed toward the increasing wages in America under Trump.

Vance complimented some of his top rivals in the GOP after a lot of negative publicity led up to the race. He called for unity and even asked the audience to stop when they booed Josh Mandel, the former state treasurer.

He stated that Mandel was a public servant who was dedicated right from the Marine Corps to now the office of the State Treasurer. He even called for support from Mandel’s supporters.

Ohio congressman Tim Ryan won the Senate Democratic Primary, and Vance said they all need to unify to beat Ryan. Ryan won after defeating Morgan Harper, who is the former senior advisor at CFPB and an attorney.

Vance stated that it is their Republican party, and it needs to win by fighting. He also said that the party belonged to all the people who work in Ohio.

Vance gave his best to tie Biden to Ryan in a state where Trump won by eight points in 2020.
