Dolan Slams Fellow Republican Senate Candidates, Injecting More Personal Attacks Into This Messy Senate Primary

Columbus, OH — In case you missed it, in an interview with Jewish Insider yesterday, millionaire Matt Dolan took a shot at the rest of the GOP Senate field, saying, “my opponents all failed the very first test — that they’re going to follow politics before they follow what’s in the best interest of Ohio.” Dolan’s comments are just the latest example of Ohio Republicans running for Senate continuing to attack each other at all costs to win this crowded primary.  

Dolan also took a direct shot at Josh Mandel, saying, “And I have been very successful…without leaving a trail of destruction of personalities behind me.” When asked to clarify if he’s attacking Mandel, he said, “Yeah. I think tone and rhetoric is not a substitute for results and good policy.” 

Republicans’ infighting could hobble the party’s chances of winning the Senate race in 2022, according to a report from The Hill. This out-of-control primary is making conservatives “deeply worried” about the prospects of Republicans losing this seat – and Dolan is only adding fuel to the fire. 

“Once Dolan entered this messy and nasty Republican Senate primary, he joined the rest of the candidates in their never-ending race to the bottom. The only thing these GOP millionaires seem to care about is launching personal attacks at one another at the expense of Ohio voters,” said Michael Beyer, spokesperson for the Ohio Democratic Party.
