Ohio Republicans are gearing up for a “lose-lose situation” situation as MAGA Republican Bernie Moreno yesterday joined an increasingly crowded Republican primary. His entry into the race follows recent reporting that the state’s primary could be “one of the messiest” and “bruising” this cycle.
Without skipping a beat, Moreno is already validating the NRSC’s biggest fears:
On Tuesday, Moreno attacked Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose, claiming his approach to politics is “one of the problems that we have in our political system.” Moreno went on to say that voters deserve “a fully engaged Secretary of State” who “stays in that office.”
Meanwhile, LaRose — who has yet to enter the race — was in Washington, D.C. today for a meet & greet with John Boehner alumni.
Moreno is also targeting his primary opponent Matt Dolan, calling him “the consummate insider political career politician,” who’s running to serve “their own political interests” rather than “doing this to serve their country.”
REMINDER: Last cycle, Mitch McConnell bemoaned the “candidate quality” of their Trumpian field of Senate candidates — which helped them lose in spectacular fashion in states across the country.
