In Republicans’ fight to retake the Senate, which is currently split 50-50 between Democrats and Republicans, with Vice President Kamala Harris casting the tie-breaking vote, there is perhaps no more important state than Ohio.
The state has increasingly drifted red since the election of President Trump in 2016.
The only elected Democrat statewide is Senator Sherrod Brown, D-Oh. who has served in the Senate since 2007.
Representative Tim Ryan, D-Oh. is running against J.D Vance in the 2022 midterm elections.
Vance is an America First candidate who was endorsed by President Trump in the primary, which he won by an 8 percent margin.
Ryan has held himself out as a moderate in an attempt to take the seat, which is currently held by outgoing Senator Rob Portman, R-Oh.
In a recent interview on CNN, his ‘moderate’ bonafides were called into question after he refused to commit to any restrictions on abortion
The Daily Caller Reports–
“Of course, we don’t support abortion at the end of term, unless, of course, there is an extraordinary circumstance, where, you know, you’re eight months into a pregnancy and something very tragic is happening in that pregnancy where you have a room, you’ve bought toys, you have clothing for the baby, everyone’s excited, and then something tragic happens. That needs to be left up to the doctor, not to J.D. Vance, Ted Cruz or anybody else. That’s a very serious situation.”
“But as a legislator, you have to have some idea about what you want to do when you’re not a doctor,” Bash said. “So should there be some restrictions when it comes to the law of the land?”
Ryan repeated that the decision is between a woman and her medical professional given that a legislator cannot make decision for every circumstance.
