“Too many people .. are down in D.C thinking about themselves and what their career aspirations and advancement is gonna look like.. instead of understanding or even caring about the problems that face this country” - Bernie Moreno
Bernie Moreno, a 2024 U.S. Senate candidate hopeful from Ohio, is gaining momentum with recent endorsements by Rep. Jim Jordan, Sen. J.D. Vance, and former President Donald Trump.
The former car dealership, businessman, and Champ Titles co-founder will take on candidate contenders Sen. Matt Dolan and Secretary of State Frank LaRose in the March 19 primary. He is a proponent of upholding the law and would like to see a stronger stance against the “invasion” at the southern border.
“We have to have a zero tolerance for illegal immigration. That means we cannot allow any form of amnesty,” Moreno explained. “If we fail to do that, what we will do is continue to encourage bad behavior ... We have to honor and respect what it takes to come into this country legally. It's the only way for us to permanently fix the problem at the border.”
Moreno was motivated to enter the political arena when he saw career politicians unwilling to protect the American dream and instead picked sides with “essential” and “unessential” labels for working Ohioans.
“Our country needs common sense conservative fighters now more than ever,” Jordan admitted in an NBC news interview. “Bernie is a political outsider who has lived the American Dream. His perspective, his grit, and his conservative values will serve Ohio well in the U.S. Senate.”
Moreno detailed part of his plan for border security stating, “We’re going to work with Mexico to make certain that they understand it’s in their best interest to have us help them wipe out the drug cartel.”
Confidence in Moreno is growing ahead of the primary and would be key to defeating incumbent democrat Sherrod Brown who holds the senate seat in a largely Republican state.
“Bernie is a true America First conservative, and will make us proud in the U.S. Senate,” Jordan said.
In a WTVG 13 ABC Action News report, Moreno lamented the personal motivations of politicians using the office for self-advancement over problem-solving.
“We have too many lawyers, too many career politicians, too many people who are down in D.C thinking about themselves and what their career aspirations and advancement is gonna look like, that is, completely focused day in and day out on the next election instead of understanding or even caring about the problems that face this country,” Moreno noted.
Within the current political landscape leading into general elections, Moreno is concerned about the future of an America where the powerful pick who wins and who loses.
“We have a country right now where the current President is using the justice system against his top opponent,” Moreno said on the debate stage. “All of those charges are completely trumped-up interference,” Moreno said.
