OHIO TRUMP RALLY: FORMER PRESIDENT’S BACKING MAY ‘PROPEL VANCE TO VICTORY,’ INDICATE POWER OF HIS ENDORSEMENT
Trump’s visit to the state comes after his endorsement of Ohio Senate candidate J.D. Vance. The former president backed Vance for the GOP Senate nomination in Ohio after top candidates jockeyed for his support for months. Rivals Mike Gibbons, Jane Timken and Josh Mandel — all advised and endorsed by at least some Trump-world regulars — sparred with Vance and each other about whose support for Trump was more genuine.
The event was slated to include speeches from Vance and Rep. Mike Carey, R-Ohio, as well as congressional candidates Max Miller and Madison Gesiotto Gilbert. The announced speakers have all received a Trump endorsement.
“Heading to Ohio for a big rally tonight, great crowd,” Trump said in a statement before the event. “See you there!”

Prior to the rally on Saturday, Trump announced his endorsement of Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose for reelection. “Frank is dedicated to Secure Elections – the most important work he can do – with every legal vote counted, no ballot harvesting, and all votes counted on Election Day,” Trump said of LaRose’s work.
