Trump-Endorsed Candidate Vows to Fight to Win

With three months to go until election day, Ohio Republican Senate nominee JD Vance says he feels “very confident about where we are.”

Vance, a former hedge fund executive and best-selling author who won a bruising GOP Senate primary in early May, trails Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan in the latest public opinion surveys in Ohio’s Senate race, one of a handful across the country that may determine whether Republicans win back the chamber’s majority in November’s midterm elections.

“I think the polls frankly are a big joke especially this far out,” Vance said Friday in a Fox News interview, before speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas.

Vance pointed to the public opinion polls ahead of the 2016 presidential election that indicated a close contest in the Buckeye State between former President Donald Trump and then-Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Ohio, at the time, was a top general election battleground state, but Trump won it by eight points in both his 2016 White House victory and in his 2020 re-election defeat to President Biden, shifting the state from purple to red.
