Ohio’s top contenders for an open U.S. Senate seat squared off Monday night for their second and final debate. Democratic Congressmember Tim Ryan is challenging Republican J.D. Vance, a venture capitalist and author of the best-selling book “Hillbilly Elegy.” Vance won the Republican nomination in May, after right-wing tech billionaire Peter Thiel gave his campaign $10 million and after he won the endorsement of former President Trump. On Monday, Vance’s opponent, Tim Ryan, called out Vance for a 2016 message in which Vance blasted Trump, comparing him to Adolf Hitler.
Rep. Tim Ryan: “You were calling Trump ’America’s Hitler.’ Then you kissed his [bleep].”
J.D. Vance: “That’s not true.”
Rep. Tim Ryan: “It is true. And then you kissed his [bleep]. And then he endorsed you, and you said he’s the greatest president of all time.”
