#OHSEN Slugfest: Abysmal Fundraising Reports, A Pop Quiz, Shredded Evidence – This Slugfest Has It All
February 2, 2024
Happy Groundhog Day! It’s Another Year Where None Of The GOP Candidates Are Fighting For Ohioans.
Columbus, OH – Between the abysmal fundraising reports, a new *sassy* pop quiz, Bernie Moreno feeling the heat for shredding key evidence he was legally required to keep, and the field trying to overrule Ohioans by passing a national abortion ban, we almost forgot it was Groundhog Day! While Ohioans can look forward to an early start to spring after Buckeye Chuck didn’t see his shadow, it’s still clear that – just like last year – no one in this field is fighting for Ohioans.
#OHSEN FIELD POSTS ABYSMAL FUNDRAISING
Bernie Moreno, Frank LaRose, and Matt Dolan all posted abysmal fourth quarter FEC reports this week – now we know why they have collectively loaned themselves more than $10 million this cycle.
The #OHSEN Field despite loaning themselves $10 million…
Matt Dolan even turned it into a family affair! Last quarter, a super PAC supporting Dolan’s campaign received $2 million from Dolan’s parents.
You know what they say, families that buy Senate seats together, stay together.
Despite the lagging fundraising reports, this slugfest continues to heat up. Yesterday, a super PAC aligned with Dolan launched a website featuring a “Which Bernie?” pop quiz. Check it out here.
NICE TRY, BERNIE – YOU CAN RUN BUT YOU CAN’T HIDE FROM YOUR DECISION TO SHRED EVIDENCE TO GET OUT OF PAYING YOUR EMPLOYEES OVERTIME
Moreno hasn’t been able to escape scrutiny after he was slammed on the debate stage last week for shredding evidence he was legally required to keep while being sued by his employees for wage theft.
While he may have destroyed paper records, he can’t erase this from Ohioans’ minds. It is clear that this is “an attack that [Ohioans are] going to keep hearing about Moreno.”
FIELD DOUBLES DOWN: SUPPORTS OVERRULING OHIOANS BY PASSING A NATIONAL ABORTION BAN
When Roe v. Wade was overturned, Bernie Moreno, Frank LaRose, and Matt Dolan celebrated the decision and said it belonged to the states. But once Ohioans voted resoundingly to protect reproductive rights, they changed their minds and now want to overrule voters by passing a national abortion ban at the federal level.
Andrew Tobias, Spectrum News: “All three of [the Republican Senate candidates] feel if they were to get to the Senate, that not only is it appropriate for the federal government to weigh in on [the issue of abortion], but also said they would vote to do so if they could.”

GROUNDHOG DAY: THE SEQUEL
Move aside, Bill Murray! Bernie Moreno, Frank LaRose, and Matt Dolan are starring in the new Groundhog Day remake about how – just like last year – no one in this field is fighting for Ohioans.
COMING SOON TO A DEBATE STAGE NEAR YOU
The Slugfest Showdown was so entertaining last month, that Spectrum News decided to host another debate. Mark your calendars for February 19th because Moreno, LaRose, and Dolan will all take the debate stage, again, and it’s sure to be another bloodbath.

46 days left until this Slugfest comes to a head and the infighting just keeps getting worse.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
Dolan Campaign Strategist: “Bernie Moreno has been caught shredding court documents… all in an effort to obscure the fact that he’s an ideological shapeshifter prone to blaming others for his own bad judgment.”
