J.D. Vance, a Candidate for the U.S. Senate, Gave an Exclusive Interview to the Guardian

A native of the south who worked as an executive in Silicon Valley before serving as a congressman for ten terms representing northern Ohio.

Republican J.D. Vance has the support of a former president in the form of Donald Trump, but his opponents, including his Democratic challenger Tim Ryan, have accused him of avoiding the voters in Ohio while he is “out of state” trying to raise money for his campaign. Vance is a Republican.

In recent weeks, Vance has not provided many interviews to the media, except interviews granted to conservative media outlets.

Even members of his own party have begun to take notice of his prolonged quiet.

According to The Daily Beast, Bill Cunningham, who has been a staple on the airwaves of conservative talk radio in Cincinnati for decades, claimed that voters, party activists, and statewide leaders have told him that Vance has been “phoning it in.”

According to a report from the Beast, Vance has reportedly been absent from a significant number of the county fairs, party meetings, and campaign appearances that candidates in this state are expected to attend.

Cunningham stated, “The Republican faithful are telling me that they can’t find J.D. Vance with a search warrant.” “They can’t find J.D. Vance with a search warrant.”

On the other hand, on Wednesday, the Guardian was granted the opportunity to do an interview with the businessman while he was raising money in Scioto County, only a few hours after his return from a trip to Washington, District of Columbia.

The conversation lasted for around 10 minutes and covered a variety of themes, such as the opioid epidemic and the rebellion that took place on January 6 on the exact building that he aspires to take.

During the interview, Vance was questioned by the Editor-in-Chief of the Guardian, Derek Myers, regarding charges that a non-profit the candidate had is a “sham” and that it was exploited for political objectives, as his detractors have asserted.

An investigation conducted by Business Insider the previous year suggested that the candidate’s phoney non-profit organisation, “Our Ohio Renewal,” was a “charade” that primarily “[sat] around doing nothing,” even though it was promoted as being an addiction-resource organisation.

According to the Ohio Democratic Party, leading Ohio opioid advocates had never heard of the organisation, and according to tax filings, Vance’s group spent more on “management fees” paid out to Jai Chabria — a longtime former Ohio Governor John Kasich advisor who now serves as Vance’s Chief Strategist — than it did on programming to address the opioid crisis that has hit Ohio harder than nearly any other state. This crisis has hit Ohio harder than nearly any other state.

The papers kept by the IRS reveal that Vance’s organisation spent $45,000 on polling, but they do not provide any additional information regarding the questions asked or the findings obtained.

Democrats in Ohio and several watchdog organisations have characterised the expenditure as unlawful use of funds and assert that it was a political gain that was disguised as aiding addicts.

The native of Middletown responded angrily on Wednesday when she was asked if the charges made against Vance’s non-profit were accurate.

“Well, it’s a terrible scam,’ because the majority of the money that goes into it is coming from me.

I contributed the majority of the funds to the charitable organisation, or at the very least, a significant portion of the funds, as is more accurate to say. I have never contributed a single dime to myself, and I have in no way sponsored my political campaign.”

According to the papers, more than 220,000 dollars were contributed to the organisation.

“The organisation performed various things to gain a better understanding of what was happening with the public’s opinion, in part because we were doing some things with public policies….

I don’t have a problem with releasing a poll, but this strange thing that Tim Ryan is talking about—and I’m not even sure what he’s talking about—is very strange indeed. However, I will look into it.

Even though Vance asserts that he is unaware of what “Tim Ryan is talking about” regarding the polling, the documentation that was submitted to the IRS (known as a form 990) bears Chabria’s signature and unmistakably outlines the amount of money spent on a “survey.”

A copy of the form from the Internal Revenue Service indicating that funds were spent by J.D. Vance’s not-for-profit organisation on a “survey” that critics assert was actually a political poll.

On Wednesday, Vance stated that the opioid problem in Ohio and the rest of the country is showing signs of improvement; however, figures provided by the CDC reveal that this is not the case.

His Opponent

Tim Ryan, who has served in Congress for ten terms and currently holds the Democratic nomination for the open Senate seat, was the target of Vance’s attacks.

If you don’t start picking different leaders, you’re not going to have a better state, a better community, or a better country. Period.

There is another candidate who is willing to call out that the leadership of this country has failed, and that candidate is me.

There is one candidate who is a 20-year career politician who has voted with Biden one hundred per cent of the time. There is also another candidate who is willing to call out that the leadership of this country has failed.


The campaign for Ryan hit back, stating that Vance’s assertions about the vote being completely along party lines were untrue.

Tim is widely regarded as one of the more moderate Republicans and Democrats in the entire House of Representatives of the United States of America.

He has worked across party lines to address the opioid epidemic, give service members a pay raise, hold China accountable, and pass the USMCA, the only trade deal he has ever supported in his career.

“He has taken on leaders from both parties when they pushed trade policies that were bad for Ohio workers,” said Izzi Levy, a spokeswoman for Ryan.

“He has worked across party lines to address the opioid epidemic, give service members a pay raise, hold China accountable, and pass the USMCA.”

“JD Vance is a fraud who spent the majority of this summer hiding from Ohioans rather than explaining why he thinks a 10-year-old should be forced to have the baby of her rapist, why women should stay in violent marriages, or why he capitalised on the opioid epidemic to start a scammy non-profit that only ever promoted himself.”

The uprising occurred on January 6th.

Vance also discussed the support he had from the previous president, Donald Trump, as well as the investigation being conducted by the January 6th Select Committee into the rebellion that occurred in the United States Capitol in 2021.

In the past few weeks, bombshells have dropped during congressional hearings that the former President rallied the group of deadly rioters and refused to do anything to stop them. This information has been brought to light.

“On January 6th, I made sure to pay attention. It’s hard for me to square what I saw on January 6th with the idea that Donald Trump is somehow personally responsible for a riot that had nothing to do with his words or his encouragements, and certainly, where he was not even physically present.

I was very disappointed with what I was watching, but I also saw a President of the United States who was constantly saying “protest peacefully, don’t break the law.”

Vance stated that the former President did not play any role in the violent attack that resulted in the deaths of seven people.

However, the articles of impeachment that were filed against Mr Trump in 2021 — which ultimately resulted in a not-guilty verdict by a Senate controlled by the GOP — cited words during the President’s speech that day claiming otherwise. Vance’s statement was contradicted by the findings of the articles of impeachment.

“[Trump] also willfully made statements that, in context, encouraged – and foreseeably resulted in – lawless action at the Capitol,” the articles read. One example is when Trump said, “If you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.”

And even though recent testimony in the hearings suggested that Mr Trump wanted to join the rioters at the Capitol, including an alleged account in which he tried to forcibly take over the wheel of his armoured SUV when his security detail refused to drive him down to the building, the President, himself, never actually stepped foot on the grounds of the Capitol during the attack.

Even though he frequently referred to himself and others as “us” throughout his speech, he never joined his supporters as they made the journey from a demonstration in front of the White House to Congress.

During the speech, the President made the following statement: “We are going to walk down to the Capitol and we are going to cheer on our heroic senators and congressmen and women, and we are probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them.”

Are they loyalists or terrorists?

Five police officers who had been on duty at the Capitol on January 6th later lost their lives in the days and weeks that followed the unrest.

Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick, who was among those who were assaulted by the crowd, passed away on January 7.

After the attack, Officer Jeffrey Smith of the Metropolitan Police Department took his own life.

Officer Howard S. Liebengood of the Capitol Police Department passed away by himself four days after the initial incident.

During the interview that took place this week, Myers questioned Vance about whether or not he thought of the rioters as patriots or domestic terrorists. Many of the rioters have been criminally indicted for their actions.

According to Vance, “I do not believe that it even comes close to fitting the definition of terrorism.”

“But look, I mean, you have a protest of hundreds of thousands of people, the vast majority of whom were obviously peaceful protestors, and the vast majority of whom never even set foot in the Capitol; and yeah, you have some violent people who beat up some police officers; and I think that when you beat up a police officer you should face the consequences for it; however, this is important: you face the consequences after a trial in which you are innocent until you are proven guilty.”

If Vance wants to get the attention of Ohio voters, the Ohio Democratic Party stated he will have to agree to more than one media interview with an objective source.
