Individuals who live in or near the neighborhood that Representative Tim Ryan formerly lived in have been knocking the congressman as he attempts to run for U.S. Senate.
The Washington Free Beacon traveled to Ryan’s old neighborhood and spoke to residents of the area, who expressed concern over inflation and skepticism over Ryan’s campaign.
“This is all Democrat, this neighborhood, I was a Democrat but started voting Republican on everything after Trump. I don’t like Ryan at all no more. I used to like him, but to me he’s just a regular politician now,” Carl Mymo, a former Democrat who changed his voter registration and lives close to Ryan’s former residence, told the Free Beacon.
Though he has voted the same as Speaker Nancy Pelosi 100 percent of the time, Ryan has framed himself as a bipartisan member of Congress during his senate campaign
“I don’t think he’s done a lot for the area. I don’t think he’s ever had a regular job. When General Motors left, he says he did a lot to try and stop that, but it was too late. He gets on the bandwagon too late,” a local nurse added.
Ryan will have to overcome historic inflation and gas prices, President Joe Biden’s low approval numbers, and his association with far-left leaders of the Democratic Party in order to defeat Republican contender J.D. Vance.
“If Tim Ryan’s own neighbors don’t think he’s the real deal for U.S. Senate, then which Ohioans will? Two-faced Tim has lost the support of his neighbors by voting with the failing Biden agenda 100 percent of the time, following the political winds and jumping on the ‘bandwagon’ of important issues too late. He is a phony career politician who is simply looking for a promotion,” said NRSC Spokeswoman Lizzie Litzow.
