Donald Trump Does a Campaign in Ohio Before the Election
On the night of Tuesday’s election, former president Donald Trump came into Ohio to rally his followers and compel them to support J.D. Vance in the state’s widely-watched U.S. Senate contest.
On Monday night in Vandalia, Trump addressed a group of about 2,000 supporters at Dayton International Airport. Just hours before the midterm elections, which will determine which party controls Congress, governorships, and state legislatures nationwide, the president paid a visit.
During a rally on Monday at Wright Bros. Aero Inc. at the Dayton International Airport, former president Donald Trump welcomes Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and Lt. Governor Jon Husted. Speaking to his fans, Trump stated that Vance “won’t be controlled by me, unfortunately” and that he would be a senator who was independent and solely focused on Ohio’s interests.
He remarked, “J.D., you have some pretty good polls. Why in the world am I here? J.D., we can cut this one short. Would you prefer to complete it quickly? The occasion played a significant role in helping Vance win the close Senate campaign against Democratic U.S. Rep.
Tim Ryan. Before Trump addressed the stage, the author and entrepreneur reiterated his campaign’s main points about the border between the United States and Mexico, dismantling technological businesses, and promoting energy production in Ohio.
Donald Trump is in Ohio TODAY in a desperate attempt to boost JD Vance’s campaign. This is our ONLY chance to fight back before folks cast their ballots tomorrow.
Please, rush a donation of ANYTHING you can afford to help us overcome this last-minute barrage of attacks.

He also used the airwaves to attack his rival, accusing the 10-term congressman of misrepresenting his positions to the public. Throughout the campaign, Ryan has positioned himself as a moderate and blasted Vance for supporting “extreme” candidates like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, who spoke at the gathering on Monday.
Ryan stated at a gathering in Delaware last week that “Republicans feel like the extremists have seized the party.” “Due to this, there are a lot of crossovers. I frequently notice signs for Ryan and (Gov. Mike) DeWine in front yards. I believe they are simply sick of the extreme. Extremism is personified by J.D. Vance, and they’re not going to stand for it. They wish to rejoin their party.
“Beating Tim Ryan is going to be great,” Vance remarked in Vandalia. Vance declared, “I’m going to love it. But let’s not forget that this is not what we are actually attempting to do. That is a consequence. Our goal is to ensure that the people of our state have the leadership they deserve in Washington, D.C.
Like Vance, Trump criticized Ryan throughout a portion of his speech, claiming the congressman was trying to “ride on the bandwagon” and get close to him. Ryan has noted a few points where he and Trump agreed, notably in relation to trade policy, but he has also been critical of both the former president and his allies.
At a rally on Monday at Wright Bros. Aero Inc. at Dayton International Airport, former president Donald Trump welcomes U.S. Senate contender J.D. Trump previews 2024 at a rally in Ohio. Although the purpose of Monday’s rally was to galvanize Ohio voters for the midterm elections, it also served as a preview of the 2024 election season.
Trump announced at the conclusion of his address that he will make an announcement on November 15 at Mar-a-Lago in Florida. He did not specify what the announcement would be, although he has been teasing the possibility of running again in 2024.
He then walked the audience through a slideshow of polls that put him ahead of Biden and other GOP candidates in prospective contests. Earlier on Monday, news organizations reported that Trump was considering announcing his reelection campaign in Ohio. Instead, he voiced complaints about Democratic policies, denounced the FBI’s search of his Mar-a-Lago residence, and opposed inquiries into the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.
He also made mention of the undocumented immigrant who is accused of raping a 10-year-old girl in Ohio. He omitted to add that the girl had flown to Indiana for an abortion because Roe v. Wade was overruled in June and her pregnancy had lasted longer than the state’s six-week restriction.
Trump claimed that Pelosi, Biden, and the radical Democrats were constantly preoccupied with distant foreign countries’ borders. “Americans deserve a president and a congress to safeguard our country’s borders.” At a rally on Monday in Vandalia, close to Dayton, former president Donald Trump is addressed by U.S. Representative Jim Jordan.
Trump fans comment on Gov. Mike DeWine and J.D. Vance. The main reason Ohioans came to the event on Monday was to see Trump. However, they also said that they were prepared to support Republicans across the board on Tuesday, claiming that Democrats are leading the nation on the wrong path.
Debbie Burnam declared, “I’m absolutely supporting DeWine, J.D. Vance, and everyone else.” “I’m a staunch Republican voter. I’d never cast a vote for a Democrat. However, some participants weren’t overly excited about their choices.
According to Julie Matheny, Vance hasn’t run a successful campaign and is “kind of boring.” Barbara Silver expressed her displeasure with Gov. Mike DeWine, who experienced backlash from members of his own party over how he handled the COVID-19 outbreak.
Additionally, Vance had to deal with ardent followers of the prior president. During the 2016 presidential campaign, he criticized Trump and once called him “America’s Hitler.” He then admitted his error and eventually won Trump’s support in the GOP Senate contest.
But according to Burnam, some Ohioans may be voting for DeWine and Ryan by splitting the vote in part because of those remarks. “J.D. Vance didn’t initially back Trump, and there are so many union members here who are definitely for Tim Ryan, “Burnam remarked. “But I believe the reason is that people, especially Republicans, simply don’t forget the fact that he first disapproved of Trump.
DeWine participated in the rally on Monday, his first outing with Trump in years. Trump criticized former Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley’s administration and urged the crowd to back the governor in his bid for reelection. Donald Trump’s supporters applaud him during a rally near Dayton on Monday night.
