Now, while running for office, Vance has moved towards a pro-Trump position and recently visited the former president in Florida in hopes of winning his support. He told Fox News on Monday he hoped people didn’t judge him for what he said earlier, and he then went back.

I think he was a good president, I think he made a lot of good decisions for the people and I think he took a lot of criticism.
Vance added that he himself had been criticized for standing up for voters and the former president’s agenda, saying, “I think that’s the most important thing, not what you said five years ago, but whether you are willing to stand up and take the heat and take the blows to actually defend the interests of the American people. “
The GOP candidate said he was sure his main challengers would use his deleted tweets against him, adding that he felt they had “baggage” related to Trump and other issues.
The Ohio Senate primaries are currently overflowing with candidates ahead of Senator Rob Portman’s retirement in 2022, which makes Trump’s support all the more enticing for attendees.
