Trump Picks Up One More Win

In the recent Ohio Republican Senate primary, Bernie Moreno emerged victorious, securing the nomination to challenge Democratic incumbent Senator Sherrod Brown in the upcoming November elections. Moreno, an entrepreneur previously in the automotive industry and related to Congressman Max Miller through marriage, overcame competition from state Senator Matt Dolan and Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose in a heated and tumultuous primary campaign.

Moreno’s campaign gained momentum, significantly aided by endorsements, notably from former President Donald Trump, Senator JD Vance, and Congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio. These endorsements, alongside his substantial financial resources—partly through self-funding—provided him an edge over his rivals.

The race saw fluctuations in voter preferences, with LaRose initially leading in the polls. However, Moreno gained the upper hand following Trump’s endorsement and solidified support from key Republican figures. Despite Dolan’s late surge, buoyed by endorsements from figures like former Senator Rob Portman and Governor Mike DeWine of Ohio, Moreno maintained his lead.

Controversy touched Moreno’s campaign when allegations surfaced linking his work email to a profile on a website known for facilitating sexual encounters. His team responded by attributing the account creation to a former intern’s prank gone wrong, asserting Moreno’s non-involvement.

As the primary election approached, Trump’s support remained steadfast, culminating in a rally for Moreno. His victory in the primary sets the stage for a fiercely competitive race against Brown in the forthcoming Senate election.
