[ Editor’s Note: This was a surprise story in the Ohio Republican crowded Senate race. Trump has backed JD Vance but there is a traditional Republican who has not taken the lap dog path via Mara Margo to Trump.

He has done the opposite, weaving into his campaign that Trump’s stolen election issue that all those who get his endorsement have to abide by is leading the party down a dead end road.

We now have outsider Matt Dolan, a state sentator surging in the polls, claiming Trump’s false claims are a cheap hoax, reaching out for those Republicans that want to send Trump and circus into political retirement and return to traditional Republicanism.

It’s a crowded field that will have a carved up vote in first round of the primary that could create an opening for Dolan to close the gap on Vance. Dolan may also be betting that the Jan6 committee report will be devastating to Trump and put the stink on Vance.

Trump still has a hold on the party as he is sitting on a bunch of campaign cash. He is also being quite stingy with it by not parching it out during the first quarter of the year.

People like Dolan see an opening to take a second path that could lead to the best number two option if the Trump association becomes toxic before November 3rd. Much can happen between now and then…Jim W. Dean ]

What a distinction between then and now, within the calibre of the individuals

However not Matt Dolan. The state senator has declined to kiss the ring, and as a substitute run as a standard conservative — pouring $10.6 million of his personal cash into the trouble.

…Dolan is the lone candidate who refuses to toe the Trump line. He has accused the previous president of “perpetuat[ing] lies in regards to the consequence” of the 2020 election.

He referred to as the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol a “failure of management” by Trump and an “assault on democracy.” At a March 21 debate, Dolan was the one candidate to boost his hand when the moderator requested who believed it was time for Trump to cease speaking in regards to the 2020 election.

…“What we sought to do from the outset was illustrate to of us that this race must be about Ohio,” mentioned Chris Maloney, Dolan’s marketing campaign guide. “You may be for pro-Trump insurance policies and never share his character, and that’s what’s taking maintain amongst Ohio Republicans.”
