Former President Donald Trump on Monday reaffirmed his support for Ohio congressional candidate Mike Carey, who is running to replace Representative Steve Stivers (R-OH-15) in a special election.
The special election, which will take place on Tuesday, is a contest between Carey and Democrat Allison Russo.
“Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 2nd, Vote for Mike Carey in Ohio who is running for Congress as an America First Patriot. Mike, who already won his primary election by a large margin, is going to close out the race tomorrow and he will win big, but only if MAGA Votes Big. Don’t leave anything up to chance,” Trump said in a statement.
The former commander-in-chief argued that Carey is central to opposition against key pieces of the agenda supported by Democrats.
“We need Mike in Congress to fight against Crazy Nancy Pelosi, AOC +3, and the rest of the Communist Democrats trying to destroy America. Mike has a brilliant future, loves Ohio, and will represent you well. Please, get out and Vote for Mike Carey!” Trump added, urging his supporters to vote.
Previously, Trump endorsed Carey in a crowded GOP primary for the seat, which Carey won by more than 20 points.
“He will be a courageous fighter for the people and our economy, is strong on the Border, and tough on Crime. As a Veteran, he totally supports our Military and his fellow Vets,” Trump explained in the original endorsement.
The open seat for the 15th District was recently vacated by Stivers, as he decided to leave Congress early to become chief executive of the Ohio Chamber of Commerce.
The 15th Congressional District is considered to be a safe Republican district. Stivers won election in 2020 by over 100,000 votes.
