Erick Erickson on Matt Dolan: “Not beclowning himself on the stage”

In case you missed it, nationally syndicated conservative radio host Erick Erickson had a segment today where he highlighted the critical importance of the U.S. Senate Republican primary in Ohio. Erickson highlighted Matt Dolan’s latest ad and noted that Matt Dolan is the only Republican candidate running a race focused on the issues important to Ohio.

ERICKSON: “We’ve got to hold Ohio. We need the best candidate in Ohio. Now, there are other candidates stepping forward in Ohio and I don’t know a ton about him. But I do think it’s interesting you’ve got other candidates who are trying to avoid the ‘Let me perform for Donald Trump’s endorsement.’ You do need to understand that part of this is a performance for Donald Trump’s endorsement that they really want support.

“Matt Dolan is a candidate who’s just come out in Ohio. I don’t know anything about him, this isn’t an endorsement, but I’m actually kind of intrigued by his take instead of trying to show that he is a populist antiestablishment candidate, he’s actually making his whole campaign about jobs in China.”

“His message is ‘conservative with results.’ I don’t know him, but he’s not clowning himself on the stage. Listen, I’m actually really intrigued with J.D. Vance and I know Josh Mandel. I’ve known him for a while. I’m intrigued with J.D. Vance, who was someone who kind of like me didn’t support Trump in 2016 and with more gusto than I would ever muster is suddenly advertising himself as a Trump guy.”

This comes on the heels of other Ohio and national news media outlets that have also referred to Dolan as “the only adult in the room.”
