The one battleground Senate candidate that Trump had that had been winning from the outset was JD Vance.
Now, that is no longer the case.
Somehow, with his radical nonsense, Tim Ryan has taken the lead.
At this point, Trump could get shut out in all these key battleground races.
Mehmet Oz (PA), Blake Masters (AZ), Herschel Walker (GA), and JD Vance (OH) are all losing.
JD Vance held a slight lead for most of the race since the primaries were over, but now he is trailing 46-43.
Trump supporters will not like this, but I very much fault Trump for a lot of this.
These candidates were all hand-picked by him, but he did not financially support any of them with his PAC.
He had over $250 million in his main PAC, but most of that money has gone to rallies and legal bills.
Trump has launched a new PAC specifically to help these candidates in the general election, but it may be too little too late.
JD Vance had the best chance of all the candidates, probably followed by Herschel Walker.
However, Walker has just been a mess, becoming his worst enemy.
Oz was always a bad choice and Masters is considered a conspiracy theorist and way too far right for moderates.
Vance can obviously still win this race, and we need him to, as well as at least one of the other three if we are going to take back the Senate.
If all four of them lose, it will be a crushing blow to Trump and could ruin any hope he has of running again in 2024.
It is tough to rally behind someone that endorsed candidates that lost in every state we need in order to win a general election and remove Joe Biden from office.
