Club for Growth’s Warren Davidson Escalates Primary Brawl as He Embraces Donald Trump’s Nemesis
May 24, 2023
Yesterday on Timcast, Warren Davidson turned up the temperature on Republicans’ “family fight” by expressing support for Trump-nemesis Ron DeSantis while casting doubt on Trump’s ability to win suburban voters in key battleground states in 2024.
“From receiving Club for Growth’s blessing to now embracing Trump-nemesis Ron DeSantis, Warren Davidson is pouring gasoline on the Ohio Senate primary fire,” said Ohio Democratic Party spokesperson Reeves Oyster. “As this primary heats up and candidates are forced to manage emerging fault lines while duking it out over key endorsements, it’s clear whoever emerges from this primary will be badly bruised, battered, and out-of-touch with Ohioans.”
Davidson’s comments come on the heels of Club for Growth President David McIntosh taking a shot at Trump – suggesting his candidacy could drag down candidates at the top of the ticket and dissuade others from entering competitive Senate races.
Club for Growth has already urged Davidson to enter the race and pledged their early support – setting up a repeat of 2022’s nasty battle between Club for Growth and Donald Trump in Ohio. Earlier this week, Trump-loyalist J.D. Vance endorsed Bernie Moreno.
