Former Ohio Republican Party Chair Jane Timken on Thursday announced her candidacy for U. S. Senate in the state in 2022, calling herself a “conservative disruptor” who will advance former President Trump’s “America First” agenda for Ohio workers and families.
“I’m a mom and a fighter – who won’t stand back and let America become a socialist country,” Timken told Fox News.
Timken, who served as the chair of the Ohio Republican Party from 2017 to 2021, said she changed the party after former Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich and 2016 presidential hopeful “transformed” it into a “corrupt, anti-Trump mess.”
“With the support of President Trump, I cleaned house,” she said. “I completely transformed and united the party into a well-oiled, pro-Trump machine that won conservative victories and advanced an America First agenda at every level – and that delivered a second victory for President Trump in our state.”
Timken slammed President Biden, saying that in “less than 30 days” his administration is “sliding us backward.”
“I simply can’t sit on the sidelines and watch Biden and the socialist left do this to our country, to Ohio workers, to our children – so I’m stepping forward to be a conservative disruptor once again, and running for the U. S. Senate to fight for the Trump agenda, stop socialism dead in its tracks and be a champion for all Ohioans,” she said.
Timken added: “I plan to go to D. C. to fight back.”
Timken touted Trump’s presidency and agenda, saying that his “America First vision worked for America.”
“Those policies were working for this country and for Ohioans,” she said, adding that “no one has worked harder for Trump and his agenda than me.”
