‘Possibly crazy’: Ohio’s only anti-Trump Republican Senate candidate is gaining steam and provoking Trump

Former President Donald Trump launched an angry tirade while speaking on an Ohio radio show Tuesday against a Republican Senate primary candidate who recently surged in the polls against JD Vance, whom he recently endorsed.

During an appearance on “The Bruce Hooley Show,” Trump invented the term “potential wokie” while disparaging candidate Matt Dolan. Hooley upset Trump by saying he doesn’t think Dolan is “a true conservative” because the candidate supports the Ohio Equality Act, which would grant protected status to LGBQT citizens. The former president was only too happy to use that as a starting point to jump into the fray.

“I don’t know much about him, but what I do know is that he’s involved with the Cleveland Indians. Being somewhat of a baseball fan, I didn’t think the name change was a good thing. I think anyone who does is wokie, or potentially wokie.” Trump opined.

He then extended his criticism of sports teams that have changed their nicknames so as not to further disparage Native Americans by saying that he was also against the Washington football team’s decision to drop the “Redskins” moniker in favor of Native Americans. “Commanders”.

Dolan, a state senator from Ohio and chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, pointedly did not seek Trump’s endorsement. He is part of the ownership group of the recently renamed Cleveland Guardians professional baseball team.

Of the name change, Trump complained: “That would actually make me not vote for someone like that.”
