Rep. Jim Renacci defends President Trump's 's-hole' remarks

Until a few days ago, Rep. Jim Renacci had been ready to run for governor in the state of OH, but he said Friday he changed his mind because the White House called, and he is now seeking a senator's seat. Sherrod Brown after getting a call from the Trump administration. I was there on Wednesday.

According to several media outlets, during a private meeting with lawmakers Thursday, Trump stunningly questioned why the USA would admit Haitians or people from "sh**hole" countries in Africa, expressing a preference instead for immigrants from Norway, a majority white nation.

"They basically asked me to get in the race and this president wants to help me with this race, and it's been a whirlwind 48 hours, that's for sure", Renacci said.

The congressman was running for governor but left the race after Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel abruptly dropped out of the Republican Senate primary last week, leaving the party scrambling to find a viable candidate in the competitive state. They continue to drive policy based on elections not future generations, and, you know, for me I've learned a lot. "Believe me, I've learned that when you've got a mike on, you've got to watch what you say".

The store closures will be in the towns of Naperville, Wheeling, Batavia, Streamwood, Matteson, Moline, and Romeoville. Management will attempt to transfer current employees to other Sam's Clubs or Walmarts nearby.

Renacci would be running against Democratic Sen. "Indeed, it's happened many times in many states in recent years", the political scientist said. "They all wanted me to come on board".

But the OH native now with the University of Virginia's Center on Politics was sure about one thing: "It will assuredly be nasty - nearly all big races are". Ohio Gov. John Kasich described Trump's comments as "not helpful" and "inappropriate" during an MSNBC television appearance and said he disagreed with Renacci's stance.

"The President certainly isn't speaking for me and he isn't speaking for a great majority of people across OH", said Brown. "That's where I started". "But in the end, I know a lot of times he's saying what people are thinking".

He added that he'll welcome Trump's support.

Despite the already-prepared opposition research on Renacci and Brown's advantage as a well-known incumbent, the Republican could mount a serious challenge if the national GOP pours in serious cash, Kondik said. "We have to change the agenda. We all make mistakes, but there's no excuse and when you do it you have to apologize". "But we also have to be able to work together".

Brown released a statement that said he disagrees with Renacci's assertion "that President Trump's disgusting and hateful comments about immigrants were speaking for what many Americans are thinking".

"I know it's hard for the president, because many times you want to say what you are thinking", Renacci told Fox News.

Renacci capped his defense of the president's racist remarks saying, "Look, I always say judge the president after four years".
