Republican Ohio Senate candidate Matt Dolan didn’t attract as much media attention as other candidates for most of the GOP primary – but he thinks he’ll pull off a win due to his focus on Ohio voters over national politicians.
“I do,” Dolan, a state senator, said when asked if he’s feeling momentum on the ground that’s reflected in some recent polls. “And I have felt it for some time because Ohio Republicans want somebody who’s talking about their financial security, their neighborhood security, their border security, international security.”
In an interview at the Delaware County Republican Party Lincoln Reagan Dinner, the state senator made clear that he supports Trump’s policies. “President Trump was a Republican president who did some Republican ideas and executed on them. And our country was stronger. Our economy was better,” Dolan told Fox News Friday. But he argues Ohio’s Senate election shouldn’t be so centered on one man.
Trump recently endorsed former investment banker and “Hillbilly Elegy” author J.D. Vance in the GOP primary.
