Ohio Republican US Senate candidate Bernie Moreno has special message for GOP members who 'don't like' Trump

Former President Trump was flanked by several Republican allies during a campaign rally in Ohio on Saturday, where he urged voters to support Republican Senate candidate Bernie Moreno.

In his remarks, Trump railed against President Biden — calling him "a great threat to our democracy" and the "worst president in U. S. history" — and his border policies. The 45th president also urged voters to back Moreno, an Ohio businessman who is running to help Republicans win a crucial seat and potentially flip the majority in the U.S. Senate.

Moreno returned the favor during the speech, urging voters to back Trump, and he offered a special message to Republicans who "don’t like" the former president.

"I am so sick of Republicans that will say 'I support President Trump's policies, but I don't like the man,'" Moreno said, drawing some reaction from the crowd. "This is a good man. This is a great American. This man wakes up every day fighting for us, fighting for this country. He loves this country like no other leader in this nation has ever loved this country."

Moreno faces Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose, and state Sen. Matt Dolan in the Republican primary on Tuesday.

The winner will face third-term U. S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, who is viewed as a particularly vulnerable Democrat, in November.

Trump's pick for Ohio senator has picked up several endorsements ahead of the crucial primary election.

Sen. Bill Hagerty, R-Tenn., endorsed Moreno in a statement last month.

"I am thrilled to endorse Bernie Moreno as Ohio’s next U. S. Senator. Bernie is a strong conservative who will put America first and help reverse the damage done by Joe Biden and the radical left’s agenda."... (Read more)
