PM: Venture capitalist and best-selling author JD Vance joined Fox News‘ Tucker Carlson on Thursday to announce his plan to run for Senate from the state of Ohio. He intends to enter the Republican primary.
“I think what we need in Washington is people who understand how the elites plunder this country and then blame us for it in the process,” Vance said. “We need people in Washington, DC, who know how the system works, who know how to reform that system and can make this country better. And that’s why I’m running to be your next us Senator for the state of Ohio.”
“I care about this country and I care about the state, Tucker. If you think about the entire trajectory of American life over the last 30, 40 years, you have elites and the ruling class that have plundered this country, that have made it harder for middle-class Americans to live a normal life,” Vance said.
“And when those Americans dare to complain about the conditions of their own country, if they dare to complain about the Southern border or about jobs getting shipped overseas, what do they get called?” Vance asked. “They get called racist. They get called bigots, xenophobes, or idiots. They need somebody who’s willing to speak for them. Who’s willing to fight for them.” more
