Donald Trump supports JD Vance in chaotic Ohio Senate primary

Donald Trump endorsed author and venture capitalist JD Vance in Ohio’s chaotic GOP Senate primary on Friday, ending months of speculation about which candidate would finally deserve the former president’s support.

“It’s time for the entire MAGA movement, the largest in our country’s history, to unite behind JD’s campaign because unlike so many other pretenders and wannabes, he will put America first,” Trump said in one Explanation. “In other words, JD Vance has my complete and unreserved approval. He won’t let you down. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

Hillbilly Elegy memoirist and rivals Josh Mandel and Jane Timken both clashed over Trump’s support of the May 3 primary. The endorsement is expected to give a big boost to Vance, whose candidacy was struggling for a surge less than a month after Election Day. Recent polls put him roughly level with Mandel and Mike Gibbons.

Vance, a friend of Donald Trump Jr., had to retract early criticism of Trump to be viable for the MAGA base. He has called Trump “harmful” and “an idiot” and admitted not voting for him in 2016. However, since entering the race to replace GOP Sen. Rob Portman, Vance has said the former president “proved me wrong”.

Trump’s decision is a blow particularly to Timken, his handpicked choice to lead the Ohio Republican Party, and Mandel, the former state treasurer who has aggressively adopted Trump’s political stance.

Ohio’s endorsement comes days after Trump also swayed the Pennsylvania Senate race and killed famed surgeon Mehmet Oz, better known as “Dr. Oz” from his daytime TV show.

Despite his frequent Fox News hits, Vance is not well known in Ohio’s grassroots political circles. His greatest claim to national fame is his memoir about growing up surrounded by addiction and poverty in Middletown, Ohio.

The winner of the GOP primary is almost guaranteed to face Democrat Tim Ryan in the general election.
