Trump endorses Vance in Ohio GOP Senate primary

Former President Trump endorsed author J.D. Vance in Ohio’s Republican Senate primary on Friday, calling Vance “the most qualified” candidate in the GOP field.


“Like some others, J.D. Vance may have said some not so great things about me in the past, but he gets it now, and I have seen that in spades,” Trump said in a statement, referring to Vance’s past criticism of him.  “He is our best chance for victory in what could be a very tough race.”
