ICYMI: Sandusky Register: Majewski May Run Again
September 25, 2023
Columbus, OH – In case you missed it, the Sandusky Register reported today that J.R. Majewski is considering running again for Ohio’s 9th Congressional District, once again creating a messy, chaotic primary race for Republicans in OH-09. In recent weeks, Majewski has weighed into the OH-09 GOP primary, criticizing Ohio Republican Party leadership, as well as the current primary field.
It’s a sign that the OH-9 GOP primary will be as messy as last cycle, with Majewski and his supporters questioning the MAGA credentials of the current Republican field and setting up a nasty intra-party fight.
“I definitely do want to run again, but I want to make sure I do it on my terms,” Majewski told Tom Jackson with the Register.
“Whether J.R. Majewski ultimately decides to run or not, it’s clear he’s ready to insert himself into another messy primary race for Republicans in Ohio’s 9th Congressional District. While establishment Republicans were hoping to clear the field for their hand-picked nominee, J.R. clearly has other ideas,” said Matt Keyes, spokesperson for the Ohio Democratic Party.
