Akron Beacon Journal: “JD Vance is Not Fit for Senate; Matt Dolan is Better”

In case you missed it, The Akron Beacon Journal endorsed Matt Dolan for U.S. Senate over the weekend, noting that J.D. Vance is “not fit” to represent Ohio in the U.S. Senate. The endorsement was one of three notable pieces in support of Dolan to appear in Ohio newspapers over the weekend.

JD Vance is Not Fit for Senate; Matt Dolan is Better

“Vance is not Senate material; he lacks relevant experience and has a troubling record of flip-flopping.”

“On the one hand, in 2016 he called some of Trump’s supporters racists. But in 2022, [Vance] happily accepted the endorsement of U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene,the Georgia conspiracy theorist who was under fire for speaking at a white nationalist conference in February.”

“Dolan is the only candidate worthy of a victory in the GOP primary.”

“Among those endorsing Dolan, of Chagrin Falls, is Republican Sen. Jay Hottinger of Newark, who praises him for having “the strength of character to tell us the truth.”

Dolan was also featured in a Cleveland Plain Dealer editorial entitled, “Don’t be fooled – Matt Dolan is critical to GOP’s battle to retake the Senate: Ted Diadiun.”

Don’t be fooled – Matt Dolan is critical to GOP’s battle to retake the Senate: Ted Diadiun.”

“[State Sen. Matt Dolan]…takes issue with the current administration with his support for increasing our ability to achieve energy independence, and opposes the progressive instinct to solve every problem with more and bigger government, which, he says, ‘disincentivizes individual growth, economic growth.’

“He is the only one of the candidates who could be described as “senatorial” – whose demeanor in the Ohio Senate has displayed a man of well-thought-out ideas and aversion to invective.

“Unlike his six opponents, Dolan prefers to look forward, toward what is best for the country rather than backward, to re-argue a two-year-old election. And he admirably refuses to spout nonsense in order to win Trump’s approval.

“The tactics of the other six might play well in the Republican primary. Not in the general election against the formidable likely Democratic nominee, U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan.”

Thirteen Mayors from Cuyahoga County also penned an op-ed endorsing Dolan’s candidacy.
