Why Trump Backed J.D. Vance

Former president Donald Trump thinks Rep. Tim Ryan (D) will be a very strong candidate in Ohio’s U.S. Senate race and that J.D. Vance (R) is the only Republican likely to win, Axios reports.

“Trump, who puts a ton of stock in debates, was impressed with Vance’s performances — and thought Mandel was embarrassing.”

“Trump was soured by clips of a near-physical debate altercation last month between Mandel and another rival, investment banker Mike Gibbons.”
