ODP Chair Liz Walters Slams J.D. Vance And Trump For Counterprogramming The OSU-Toledo Game
September 16, 2022
Columbus, OH — Yesterday, Ohio Democratic Party Chair Elizabeth Walters slammed Trump and J.D. Vance for holding a rally that will be happening at the same time as the Ohio State-University of Toledo game. Having a campaign event on a fall Saturday night is a cardinal sin in Ohio – something out-of-state fraud J.D. Vance has forgotten after spending most of his adult life on the coasts.
Here’s remarks from Chair Walters and a recording here:
- “When J.D. Vance left Ohio behind for the coasts, he forgot how we spend our fall Saturdays here in Ohio: watching college football. So now, out-of-state fraud J.D. Vance and Donald Trump are scheduling a rally to counterprogram the OSU-Toledo game and do what they do best, which is promote themselves. It’s no secret Vance really hates spending time in Ohio.”
- “He left Ohio to make money working in Big Tech finance in California, and Vance then wrote that he would move back to Ohio to focus on a non-profit, which he said would help those struggling with addiction. And that’s not what happened. Instead, according to news reports, Vance’s non-profit turned out to be a “superficial” “charade” that was clearly meant to bolster his political career more than anything else. In its first year, the group spent more money paying Vance’s top political advisor than on programs to fight the opioid epidemic. And the group conducted polling that was probably used to test the waters for a future J.D. Vance run for office.”
- “When he takes the stage on Saturday, he’s going to try and hide his extreme position on abortion from Ohioans, but we won’t be fooled. If J.D. Vance had it his way, abortion would be banned nationally with no exceptions for rape or incest. J.D. Vance is so out-of-touch he compared abortion to slavery and called rape ‘inconvenient.’ He’d be merely another ‘yes’ vote for national Republicans’ plan for a national abortion ban.”
