A last look at the race for the Republican Senate nomination in Ohio
Our local Ogden outlets give us editorials on Ohio State Park Week but nothing on the election
It looks like Trump's endorsement of J.D. Vance may have made a difference. Here’s the most recent poll:
OHIO— PollingReport.com (@pollreport) April 26, 2022
If the Ohio Republican primary election for U.S. senator were held today ...
J.D. Vance 23%
Josh Mandel 18%
Mike Gibbons 13%
Matt Dolan 11%
Jane Timken 6%
Neil Patel 1%
Mark Pukita 1%
Wouldn't vote (vol.) 1%
(Fox News Poll, Republican primary voters, 4/20-24/22)
How’s that front-runner doing?
J.D. Vance says that Biden is intentionally killing Trump voters:
Vance says Biden is trying to kill MAGA voters: “If you wanted to kill a bunch of MAGA voters in the middle of the heartland, how better to target them and their kids with this fentanyl .. It does look intentional. It’s like Biden wants to punish people who didn’t vote for him.” pic.twitter.com/5Yoh0CA44z— Ron Filipkowski 🇺🇦 (@RonFilipkowski) April 30, 2022
Some sympathy for Josh Mandel?
Josh Mandel has been as loyal a cultist as a MAGA can get. He has worshipped Trump every step of the way, while JD Vance was calling him ‘America’s Hitler.’ This is how they repay that loyalty. Poor Josh. pic.twitter.com/HmBDVgTL8A— Ron Filipkowski 🇺🇦 (@RonFilipkowski) April 29, 2022
Sorry, no sympathy from me.
Senator Capito continues to campaign for Jane Timken
Great day campaigning with @JaneTimkenOH. Jane understands the needs of Ohio and is ready to lead. I look forward to working with her to make sure America becomes energy independent again. pic.twitter.com/jrimd4MKrR— Capito for WV (@CapitoforWV) April 29, 2022
On the other hand

But not Matt Dolan. https://t.co/eouDjNc4dI
From the article:
Days before the May 3 primary, Dolan appears to be experiencing a late burst of momentum. While J.D. Vance — who received Trump’s endorsement last week — has surged into first place according to the most recent Fox News poll, Dolan was the only other top contender to gain ground in the poll since last month. A separate poll released Tuesday by Blueprint Polling actually placed Dolan in first place with 18 percent of the vote, followed by Vance at 17 percent.
A busy Saturday for endorsers

Hey, where’s Lauren Boebert? (Speaking of which, I cannot find anything on last night’s Mooney rally.)
