Trump wins the Ohio GOP Senate primary

Wait, what?

President Trump plucked author J.D. Vance out of the pack and rode him to a solid victory in a tight, expensive contest for the Republican Senate nomination in Ohio.

In doing, so, the former president demonstrated that his clout within the Party is as strong as ever.

According to Fox News:

If former President Donald Trump’s continued clout over the Republican Party was on the line in Ohio’s highly contested and contentious GOP Senate primary, the former president easily passed the test.

J.D. Vance, the candidate Trump endorsed less than three weeks ago in the crowded and expensive showdown that has grabbed national attention for months, on Tuesday won the GOP nomination in the race to succeed retiring Republican Sen. Rob Portman.

And the former president, who 15 months removed from the White House remains the most popular and influential politician in the GOP, didn’t waste any time taking credit.

“JD Vance put in tremendous work and has immense political talent—which put him in the position to earn the support of President Trump—but it was the endorsement of President Donald J. Trump that took a candidate who many insiders said was in 4th and at single digits in the polls, and in only two weeks, propelled him into a commanding first place finish,” Trump spokesman Taylor Budowich told Fox News in a statement soon after Vance’s victory.

  1. Most Americans valued the Trump policies, if not the man. Understood.
    Trump best serves our nation by being the rainmaker, backing candidates that follow the same path.
    Whether he should run again, I find that to be a distraction from the goal. The turmoil of another Trump run could potentially do more damage than good.

    But, hey, I could be wrong.
