White House encourages Jim Renacci to run for Senate, decision expected soon

OH state treasurer Josh Mandel, who was Republicans' top candidate to oppose Brown, unexpectedly dropped out of the race last week, citing his wife's health.

Youngstown State University President Jim Tressel is being eyed by Republicans as a possible candidate for the U.S. Senate according to a report in the Washington Examiner.

Mike Biundo, a consultant for Gibbons, said Gibbons was committed to the race and had done more to support Trump than any other potential candidate.

Democratic incumbent Sherrod Brown announced Wednesday his campaign raised $2.6 million in the fourth quarter ending December 31, leaving him with $9.8 million in the bank.

"Earlier this week I was asked to attend a meeting at the White House, at which I was asked to help protect the future of President Trump's agenda by entering Ohio's 2018 race for the United States Senate", Renacci wrote in a letter to supporters.

Conservative leaders immediately started encouraging Renacci to get into the Senate race, but the four-term congressman said he'd consider it only if Trump asked him. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), and will announce his candidacy on Thursday.

Whoever emerges from the May 8 Republican primary would have their hands full trying to unseat Brown, who has been in the Senate since 2007.

Renacci entered the race for governor in March of previous year and while competitive in early fundraising numbers with Mike DeWine and Jon Husted, it was money he had primarily lent to his campaign. "He's been building a campaign, he's been going among the state, he's tied himself very much to President Trump and his agenda, he's been successful in Congress in getting re-elected a few times and so he makes the most sense of the gubernatorial candidates to jump into that race", Sutton said. Renacci is listed as the 41st richest member of Congress.

Once a mostly wide-open Republican primary, Attorney General Mike DeWine and Secretary of State Jon Husted, the top two contenders, joined forces, significantly shrinking Renacci's chances in a race that also includes Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor.

Tressel has donated to Republican campaigns over the past decade, mostly to Ohioans.

"Voters want a true outsider in the race and are exhausted of career politicians who are always interested in their next job", Biundo said.

After Mandel dropped out, Gibbons quickly sank $5 million of his money into the campaign.

I've met Mike Gibbons and know that he has the right team to defeat Sherrod Brown.
