J.D. Vance

J.D. Vance is running for one of Ohio’s two U.S. Senate seats.

NEW LEXINGTON – Best-selling author and U.S. Senate hopeful J.D. Vance visited Perry County Wednesday, and spoke to The Perry County Tribune about his bid to win the Senate seat for Ohio that’s being vacated by Republican Rob Portman.

Vance is probably best known as the author of the much-praised, much-maligned 2016 memoir “Hillbilly Elegy,” which was made into a feature film by director Ron Howard last year. In his interview he addressed topics including how he differs from the large field of conservative, pro-Trump Republicans also seeking the seat; why his own views on Trump have changed; and whether his role as a venture capitalist could make it more difficult for him to function effectively as a legislator.
