Frank LaRose makes it official with U.S. Senate run
Frank LaRose has followed expectations by running for U.S. Senate.
The Republican Secretary of State has filed paperwork to run and added a U.S. Senate campaign photo to his Twitter profile.
“Like a lot of Ohioans, I’m concerned about the direction of our country,” Larose said in a statement declaring his candidacy. “As the father of three young girls, I’m not willing to sit quietly while the woke left tries to cancel the American Dream. We have a duty to defend the values that made America the hope of the world.”
For months, LaRose, 44, has been hinting at a possible Senate run while publicly criticizing Democratic incumbent Sherrod Brown.
Moreno and Dolan both ran unsuccessful campaigns last year for Ohio’s other Senate seat. They lost the Republican primary to J.D. Vance, who went on to beat Tim Ryan for the seat.
