Jim Renacci Leaves Governor Race To Launch US Senate Bid Instead

Renacci, who had planned a bid for governor, reversed his course after state Treasurer Josh Mandel, considered the front-runner, suddenly dropped out because of his wife's health issues.

Ohio Republicans are recruiting former Ohio State University head football coach Jim Tressel to run for the Senate this year, seeing his popularity across the Buckeye State as a key asset to challenge incumbent Democratic Sen. It is time for all conservatives to rally around conservative, outsider Mike Gibbons.

An investor popular with Republican donors, Vance had talked about a possible run with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of neighboring Kentucky, but McConnell and his allies saw Renacci as more tested. While my strong distaste for Washington and the political establishment is as fervent as ever, so too is my commitment to advancing the President's agenda for a stronger and more prosperous America.

Fortunately, Republicans already have the flawless candidate in the race to defeat Sherrod Brown.

Democratic incumbent Sherrod Brown announced Wednesday his campaign raised $2.6 million in the fourth quarter ending December 31, leaving him with $9.8 million in the bank.

Renacci could officially announce his plans as soon as Wednesday night or Thursday morning, the Republicans familiar with his plans said.

"As I've said many many times, if the president of the United States reaches out and contacts me and asks me to jump in that race, I would consider it only at that point", Renacci told Cleveland radio station WTAM earlier this week.

He called Senator Brown, who was elected in 2006 and again in 2012, a "far left, career politician". "He brings nothing to the table but a record of giving away tax breaks to multi-millionaires like himself, while making OH families pay more for their healthcare and empowering corporations to send good OH jobs overseas", Strassberger said.

Ahead of Renacci's announcement, Gibbons' campaign said he "remains committed to the race".

A blessing from the White House would make the transition from the gubernatorial race to senatorial race much easier for Renacci.

Mr. Renacci, 59, a former mayor of Wadsworth, Ohio, now in his fourth term in Congress, said in his email that he spent most of his career in the business world and that he ran for Congress because "I was deeply concerned over the direction of our country and its lack of accountable leadership in Washington". Unlike Brown, and others who might consider the race, Gibbons is a true outsider. Sherrod Brown in the November election.
