Knives Out, Part 3: Now Playing in Ohio
March 6, 2023
Columbus, OH – If you’re a Republican thinking about running for Senate in Ohio, watch your back, because the knives are officially out. After Republican Bernie Moreno wrote a whole op-ed for the Columbus Dispatch attacking Matt Dolan, he took to the airwaves this weekend to go after Dolan and Frank LaRose, saying the GOP primary was going to be full of “career politicians” and members of the “political class.” Meanwhile, Dolan’s chief strategist went after LaRose on Twitter during his CPAC speech, accusing him of “paling (sic) around with election deniers and conspiracy theorists.”
“It looks like the third installment of Knives Out is already playing in Ohio, and not even Benoit Blanc could untangle the mess that is the GOP Senate primary. It’s a mystery why these Republicans continue to talk about anything other than the issues working Ohioans care about, but there’s no surprise ending here: the Republican nominee will be badly bruised coming out of this nasty primary,” said Matt Keyes, spokesperson for the Ohio Democratic Party.
