Ohio Senator-elect J.D. Vance urged Republicans to stop blaming former President Trump for what some see as underwhelming midterms results.

I’ve seen enough bad election analysis from people with no skin in the game. Here’s a candidate’s view of some problems with the midterms:

In an op-ed published on Monday, Vance (R-Ohio) pointed out that lobbyists and lawmakers were taking all the credit on election night when the polls suggested the red wave was coming. However, when the numbers turned out to be more modest, Vance said those same people abandoned their optimism and turned on Trump.

Vance said the real reason Democrats kept the Senate and did not get blown out of the House was due to the DNC’s massive fundraising machine. He claimed that is how John Fetterman (D-Penn.) was able to overcome Doctor Oz’s campaign and why Stacey Abrams (D-Ga.) lost by a single digit margin.

The incoming Senator urged party officials to enhance outreach to small dollar donors and voters. He added that blaming the 45th President is counterproductive.
