Ohio GOP Rep. Renacci To Drop Gubernatorial Bid For Senate Run

U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci of the Akron area told supporters Thursday through an email that he intends to drop out of the race for governor of OH and instead run for the GOP nomination for the U.S. Senate.

Mr. Renacci leaves the Republican race for governor to Attorney General Mike DeWine and Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, and their running mates.

On Thursday, Congressman Jim Renacci switched gears from being a candidate for governor and announced that he wants the Senate job. "If the president of the United States reaches out and s me and asks to me to jump in that race, I would consider it only at that point. I would clearly consider it only at that time".

While some Republicans may run campaigns in 2018 that look to distance themselves from the president, Renacci said his will not be one of them.

Mr. Renacci, 59, a former mayor of Wadsworth, Ohio, now in his fourth term in Congress, said in his email that he spent most of his career in the business world and that he ran for Congress because "I was deeply concerned over the direction of our country and its lack of accountable leadership in Washington".

Whoever emerges from the May 8 Republican primary would have their hands full trying to unseat Brown, who has been in the Senate since 2007. He's done more than 100 campaign events in 71 counties.

The Cleveland-area investment banker, a first-time candidate who has pledged to spend $5 million of his personal fortune on his campaign, already is seeking the Republican nomination for Senate. Vance, who recently moved back to OH from California, has been courted by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Renacci also met Wednesday with officials at the National Republican Senatorial Committee, according to one of the Republicans familiar with his plans, who also spoke on the condition of anonymity. "So I think it'll be a spirited primary". "He's far from flawless, but who else is there?" A source close to the Trump White House called the meeting "very positive" and said Renacci was encouraged to run.

Gibbons has been campaigning aggressively for months since entering the race, winning countless endorsements from grassroots leaders and the Franklin County Republican Party.

"He's been on the phone since Friday", Schrimpf said late Monday afternoon. I thank you sincerely for your support and please keep an eye out for news coming directly from our Senate campaign, which we are launching today.

Gibbons, a GOP donor and Trump supporter, said Thursday he's staying in the race.

"Putting up a member of Congress against a sitting senator is just putting two politicians up against each other", Schrimpf said.
