Venture Capitalist Elegy: Big Tech Candidate J.D. Vance Trying Again to Rewrite History
July 1, 2021
Columbus, OH — With the financial backing of Big Tech, J.D. Vance launched his bid for U.S. Senate today, laughingly attempting to rail against the tech billionaires and coastal elites that are steering his campaign, including scandal-ridden Cambridge Analytica co-founder Robert Mercer. Vance is once again trying to use Ohio to further his own interests as he gets set for a campaign that’s sure to be full of hypocrisy and desperate attempts to convince voters he feels their pain.
“J.D. Vance has exploited Ohio for years, and now with the help of his Big Tech backers, he’s taking his sideshow on the road as he tries again to rewrite history. But Vance, the ultimate populist pretender, won’t fool Ohioans who have seen him take advantage of our state for years in order to line his own pockets and the pockets of his billionaire pals,” said Matt Keyes, spokesperson for the Ohio Democratic Party.
Vance’s entrance into the race only serves to make a messy Republican primary even messier, as Vance has already faced attacks from his fellow GOP candidates over his past criticisms of Trump. Republican candidates have been stumbling all over themselves in desperate attempts to secure Donald Trump’s support rather than the support of Ohio voters, and Vance will surely be no different. Funded by big-tech billionaires, he’s sure to follow the GOP field to the bottom, launching attacks and spewing vitriol that Ohioans are already tired of hearing.
We’re a year out from the primary and Brent Larkin’s predictions have already come true: “it will be a nasty affair filled with wild accusations, crazed conspiracy theories and enough nauseating and disqualifying embraces of Donald Trump’s lies to make millions of rational Ohioans reach for a barf bag.”
