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

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

U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci announced Thursday that he is ending his Republican race for OH governor to enter instead the GOP race for the U.S. Senate.

Mr. Renacci has been running in the crowded race for Republican nomination for governor to replace John Kasich, who is term-limited.

"When the president and the adminsitration calls you to action, it was a pretty compelling moment for me", the congressman told the AM 1420 radio station in Cleveland.

Renacci, a Republican from Wadsworth running for governor, has been one of the most discussed names for the Senate race after Republican Treasurer Josh Mandel announced he was dropping out last Friday, shocking OH political observers.

On Wednesday, his campaign announced Friends of Sherrod Brown raised $2.6 million in the fourth fundraising quarter of 2017.

An unnamed source close to the White House told the Cincinnati Enquirer, according to the report, that the White House staffers cited Renacci's support for President Donald Trump in their conversations.

"He wants to change Washington", Renacci said of President Trump while appearing on WHK-AM 1420.

Having grown up on the cusp of poverty in western Pennsylvania, and later dedicated myself to raising a family and growing businesses across OH, entering the political arena was never part of the path that I envisioned for my life. "It's not that the state's not important but without straightening out this country we're going to have some serious issues", Renacci said of the message from the White House.

His campaign general consultant Mike Biundo said of the Renacci decision, "voters want a true outsider in the race and are exhausted of career politicians who are always interested in their next job". Renacci is listed as the 41st richest member of Congress. "And for that reason I've agreed to answer the call to service and enter the race for United States Senate", Mr. Renacci said. That left Cleveland banker Mike Gibbons temporarily as the leading GOP candidate in a race likely to be pivotal to Democratic hopes of winning a Senate majority.

"Hillbilly Elegy" author J.D. Vance, is another possibility to enter the Senate race. Gardner chairs the Republican Senate campaign committee.
