'Hillbilly Elegy' Author JD Vance Is Reportedly Considering Senate Run

I hadn't heard any talk about him for this race, and it would be hard to enter at this late stage in the cycle.

Still running for governor are Republicans Attorney General Mike DeWine and Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, with at least a half dozen Democrats seeking nomination May 8.

OH state treasurer Josh Mandel, who was Republicans' top candidate to oppose Brown, unexpectedly dropped out of the race last week, citing his wife's health. "But again, my commitment is still to try and change the state of OH, and if I can do that in a Senate seat with the backing of the president because he wants me to do it, I would clearly consider it only at that time".

His campaign general consultant Mike Biundo said of the Renacci decision, "voters want a true outsider in the race and are exhausted of career politicians who are always interested in their next job".

He would join a race in which Cleveland businessman Mike Gibbons has already been campaigning actively.

While some Republicans may run campaigns in 2018 that look to distance themselves from the president, Renacci said his will not be one of them.

"If the president would call, I would consider it, because I would need his help really at this late part of the game", Renacci told Cleveland radio station WTAM. Mr. Gibbons' campaign has criticized the possibility of Mr. Renacci changing from the governor's race to the Senate race, saying it would expose him as career politician just interested in whatever seat is easiest to win. In the wake of Mandel's exit, he committed to investing $5 million of his own money into his race.

While Renacci says he is waiting for a nod from Trump, a spokesman for rival GOP candidate Mike Gibbons said that could be slow in coming. Gardner chairs the Republican Senate campaign committee.

Renacci and Gibbons will now compete to see who can face incumbent Democratic Sen. "So I think it'll be a spirited primary".

Another GOP official in Washington said Renacci would "do it if he got assurances from Trump and the White House that he is their guy".

The Cincinnati Enquirer reported, citing unnamed Republicans with knowledge of the decision, that Renacci chose to run for Senate after White House political staff urged him to run against incumbent Sen.

Four Republican sources confirmed Wednesday the congressman had a meeting with senior White House staff, though not with Trump.

Tom Sutton of Baldwin Wallace University said the switch makes sense.
