Trump-Endorsed Candidate Dropping Out of House Race

JR Majewski has finally gotten the message that voters and the conservative movement want nothing to do with him now.

Majewski was the 2022 Republican nominee for Ohio’s 9th District, losing one of the key races as a Trump-backed candidate.

He planned on running again in 2024, but his history has finally caught up with him.

Making a Splash

Majewski has been controversial from the outset for several reasons.

First and foremost, there were accusations of stolen valor made against him in an AP report.

In that report, AP noted that it had obtained his military service records and there was no deployment to Afghanistan as Majewski had claimed.

Instead, he served for six months in Qatar loading planes and spent most of his time in the service at Kadena Air Force Base in Japan.

After having received Trump’s endorsement for the seat, Majewski claimed it was a deep-state attack against his reputation.

Majewski got crushed in the general election, losing to Democrat Marcy Kaptur 56.6-43.4%, which equates to roughly 35,000 votes.

Even with all the controversy that surrounded him, Majewski decided to run again in 2024.

So, in addition to the stolen valor accusations, the media and his opponents also brought up comments he made about the Special Olympics.

County GOP officials censured him for his remarks, and Majewski apologized, stating, "Recently on a podcast I made some comments that were extremely insensitive and they disparaged those with special needs.

"Now, that wasn't my intention, however, I did say some things that I regret."

This time around, he was unable to generate enough support for his campaign, so he has now announced that he is dropping out of the race, much to the delight of GOP officials who want nothing more to see him removed from this race.

Majewski stated, “It has been the honor of my lifetime to receive so much support from my America First neighbors, powering me to a strong lead in this Republican primary.

“While I know I would win, and have a great shot in the general election now that my record has been cleared, it is inevitable that the Deep State will do whatever it takes to fight against me.”

With Majewski now out of the race, it will be between former state Rep. Craig Riedel and state Rep. Derek Merrin to decide who will face off against the Democrat incumbent this fall.
