GOP Ohio Senate Candidate Bernie Moreno Lands Trump Endorsement

Moreno’s campaign centers on shrinking the federal government, upholding constitutional freedoms, and promoting the “America First” agenda, with President Trump saying he is the “successful political outsider” Republicans need in Ohio.

GOP Ohio Senate candidate Bernie Moreno landed President Donald Trump’s endorsement in this year’s election to defeat third-term Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown and flip one of the most vulnerable seats in the upper chamber of Congress.

“Bernie Moreno, a highly respected businessman from the GREAT State of Ohio, is exactly the type of MAGA fighter that we need in the United States Senate,” Trump wrote on Truth Social.

Moreno, a wealthy Cleveland businessman who has reportedly invested roughly $3 million of his own money into his campaign, launched his latest effort to help Republicans gain control of the Senate last year, and has since become a favorite among the GOP. 

Ohio, once seen as a swing state, has shifted to the right in the last two presidential election cycles with Trump dominating both races by a wide margin. 

With Moreno’s campaign centering on shrinking the federal government while upholding constitutional freedoms and promoting the “America First” agenda, Trump says he is the “successful political outsider” Republicans need in Ohio.

“Bernie will always stand up to the Fascist “nut jobs” and the spineless RINOS in order to fight the corrupt Deep State that is destroying our Country,” Trump added.

Moreno has also pledged to take a stand in culture war issues, sending taxpayer’s money to foreign conflicts, and support Trump's policies on immigration.

Since Trump’s endorsement, high-profile Ohio Republicans in Congress like U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan and U.S. Sen. J.D. Vance have also voiced their support for Moreno. He has also received backing from other prominent GOP leaders, including Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Republican South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem.

Moreno, who immigrated to the U.S. when he was only 5 years old and later became a citizen at the age of 18, became a successful car dealer. In 2022, he launched his first Senate campaign for one of Ohio’s seats but suspended his efforts after losing the nomination to fellow Republican JD Vance.

“I'm a business owner and political outsider,” Moreno wrote on social media. “I say what I mean, and I mean what I say. Listen closely: @realDonaldTrump is a good man. I'm proud to have his endorsement.” 

“Together, we will put America First and fight for Ohio families,” he added.

The uniting behind Moreno stands to help him win the March 19 primary, where he will rival Secretary of State Frank LaRose and state Sen. Matt Dolan, R-Chagrin Falls. The winner of Tuesday’s race will then face Brown in November.
