JD Vance Disses The Don with Trump-less Victory Speech

It is impossible to deny that having Donald Trump in your political corner is a surefire way to capture a rather large percentage of the Republican vote, and there were no shortage of candidates lining up to get one of his coveted endorsements in 2022’s midterm elections.

JD Vance of Ohio was one of them, but it appears as though the soon-to-be Senator couldn’t be bothered with a shout-out to the former President during his Tuesday night victory speech.

Sen.-elect JD Vance, R-Ohio, did not mention former President Donald Trump in his victory speech Tuesday night, despite receiving Trump’s endorsement.

Vance is among a number of high-profile Senate candidates in tight races who Trump endorsed, but he is the only one to have secured a victory on Tuesday night. The others either lost or are in races too close to call, as in Georgia and Wisconsin.

Vance’s victory speech saw him thanking dozens of people involved either directly in his campaign or in assisting his win, but Trump wasn’t among them.

He was quick correct the omission on Wednesday, however.

Vance nevertheless thanked Trump for his endorsement in a Wednesday statement to Fox News Digital, saying the former president’s support “made all the difference.”

“I can’t thank President Trump enough for his support,” Vance said. “His endorsement and the work he did to drive turnout – including a huge rally in Dayton on election eve – made all the difference in this race, and led us to the largest battleground victory in the nation.”

Vance’s win was a bright spot in an otherwise mediocre night for the Republican Party, with alleged Trump “insiders” suggesting that The Don was secretly “livid” regarding the results.
