J.D. Vance is the projected winner of the GOP Senate primary in Ohio, marking a major victory for former Pres. Trump and the America First agenda.
In recent weeks, former Rep. Vance has risen to the top of the Republican primary in Ohio, besting his closest rivals, never-Trump Senate candidate Matt Dolan and state treasurer Josh Mandel.
Weeks after former Pres. Trump endorsed the country’s national populist in the Senate primary race, calling him “the most likely to take out the weak, yet dangerous, Democrat opponent,” his surge to victory came.
The president has confidence in Vance, saying he will “defeat him in debates and fight for the MAGA Movement in the Senate.”
“He’s strong on the Border, hard on Crime, knows how to hold China accountable through taxes and tariffs, has been a fighter for the Rigged and Stolen Presidential Election, and will fight to break up Big Tech,” Mr. Trump said in his endorsement.
Following the endorsement, Vance spoke with Breitbart News, calling it “hugely significant and powerful,” and remarking that Trump’s support was a “great boost” for us as we came down the stretch.
“Trump sees me as a guy who is really carrying on his agenda,” Vance explained.
Indeed, following the support, Vance’s poll numbers surged, with the final RealClearPolitics average showing Vance in first place by a margin of 3.5 percent.
The victory of Representative Vance will be another blow to the GOP’s establishment as he will now compete against Democrat Rep. Tim Ryan, who won his party’s primary this week.
More recently, Vance said that a Supreme Court ruling to repeal Roe v. Wade would be an “incredible triumph” for the United States.
“These kinds of leaks reveal that the Left’s elites don’t care about norms or any other concept except winning. They’ve declared a wide-scale culture war on a number of fronts,” he cautioned. “Conservatives need to wake up to this new reality,” he added.
The Democrat contender is now calling for the filibuster rule to be eliminated, as far-left lawmakers propose to make Roe v. Wade part of the legal code in order to protect abortion — a divisive issue that will almost certainly play a major role in the election.
