Ohio Democrat nominee for U.S. Senate, Rep. Tim Ryan, admitted that the Democrat brand is “not good” for his campaign in many parts of the Buckeye State.

New York Post reports:

The 10-term congressman has distanced himself from the national Democratic Party throughout the race, drawing mockery from the Republican National Committee and Ryan’s GOP opponent, J.D. Vance.

“You don’t advertise that you’re a Democrat. Is that because it’s an implicit recognition it’s a liability here?” CNN correspondent Manu Raju asked Ryan during an interview Thursday.

“Yeah, well — I mean, the Democratic brand, as we know, and you and I have talked about this for a long time, is not good in a lot of these places,” the lawmaker answered. “And I tell people, ‘Look, I’m an American. You’re an American.’”

“What I want people to know is, in this environment, do you have the guts to take on your own party?” Ryan added. “And from my vantage point, for me, it’s a resounding ‘yes.’”

After the election it’s right back to “Democrat” ways. How many times have you seen a Democrat vote differently than what Pelosi or Schumer prescribe. They never cross the aisle. Vote RED.

He is being disingenuous, to be polite, a liar. If he is elected he will have to follow the party line and follow the edicts of his party,. whether he agrees with them or not. So, if it looks like a Democrat, talks like a Democrat and smells like a Democrat, it’s a Democrat even if it tells you it’s a Possum.

As a lying democrat (it’s what they all do), this is how you try to get conservative leaning democrats to vote for you instead of republicans.

“I’m not like the others” campaign slogan is a different kind of deception. It might work.
