Ohio Republican Bernie Moreno dropped out of the race for U.S. Senate following a discussion with former President Donald Trump, saying the race has “too many Trump candidates.”
“Moreno graciously dropped out of the crowded field of candidates for the sake of the MAGA movement,” reports Breitbart News.
Moreno issued this statement:
“I asked for a private meeting with President Trump this afternoon to discuss the state of the Ohio Senate race. I am a businessman, not a politician. Business leaders recognize patterns before they happen. After talking to President Trump we both agreed this race has too many Trump candidates and could cost the MAGA movement a conservative seat.”
“Therefore, today I am ending my U.S. Senate campaign and will return to the private sector. I will focus my efforts on supporting the candidate that wins President Trump’s endorsement,” Moreno added.
“Trump applauded Moreno’s decision to suspend his campaign in a statement. The former president highlighted Moreno’s tough immigration stance and his work for the MAGA movement,” according to Breitbart News.
