JD Vance’s attempt to be a Hillbilly Elite

Guys, billionaire Libertarian fraud Peter Thiel’s hand-picked Ohio Senate Candidate and noted hillbilly effigy with authenticity problems, venture capitalist investment banker J.D. Vance was the subject of negative campaigning from The Club For Growth (and how a Republican gets on the bad side of The Club for Growth remains a mystery):

The commercials attacked Vance by using footage of him from 2016, when he described himself as a “Never Trump guy” and called Trump an “idiot,” “noxious” and “offensive.” The message was designed to hurt Vance in a Republican primary centered on fealty toward the former president. Vance, like others in the race, has cast himself as a staunch Trump ally.

What happened next is both predictable and astonishing:

Trump last month called Club for Growth President David McIntosh to complain about a TV advertising campaign the conservative organization was running targeting Ohio Senate candidate J.D. Vance, and asked McIntosh to take the ads down… according to three people briefed on the call, Trump told McIntosh the commercials could have the effect of driving down his popularity in Ohio, which he won by 8 percentage points in the 2020 election.

It’s all about him. Always.

    Interesting article since it also includes an overview of how today’s repulicant party operates.

    But the Club continued airing the $1 million TV buy — and on Wednesday, the organization escalated the offensive by plowing another $500,000 behind the effort.


    “The polls … show that the advertising has had no effect on President Trump’s image as his favorable and unfavorable ratings changed by no more than a single point in any market,” stated a separate Club-commissioned memo.


    Trump has remained in touch with McIntosh since last month’s call, and the anti-Vance commercials haven’t arisen again during their conversations, said a person familiar with the talks.

    Pitiful, pitiful, pitiful.
