Ohio Democrat nominee for U.S. Senate, Rep. Tim Ryan, admitted that the Democrat brand is “not good” for his campaign in many parts of the Buckeye State.

New York Post reports:

The 10-term congressman has distanced himself from the national Democratic Party throughout the race, drawing mockery from the Republican National Committee and Ryan’s GOP opponent, J.D. Vance.

“You don’t advertise that you’re a Democrat. Is that because it’s an implicit recognition it’s a liability here?” CNN correspondent Manu Raju asked Ryan during an interview Thursday.

“Yeah, well — I mean, the Democratic brand, as we know, and you and I have talked about this for a long time, is not good in a lot of these places,” the lawmaker answered. “And I tell people, ‘Look, I’m an American. You’re an American.’”

“What I want people to know is, in this environment, do you have the guts to take on your own party?” Ryan added. “And from my vantage point, for me, it’s a resounding ‘yes.’”

Formerly a battleground state, Ohio has become deep red in recent years, making Ryan’s chances of flipping the seat currently held by a retiring Republican very difficult. Ryan formerly had a failed run for the presidency, losing the primary to

I can tell you one thing. It’s not going to get any easier for Tim Ryan if Joe continues to push up the toxicity level within his party. I for one have always been pretty tolerant and tried to listen to opposing views, but it’s become much more difficult to do so lately. The right has always seemed more tolerant than the left but I think those days are gone. Obviously, the left can dish ot out but I doubt that they can take it!

The democrats are not only toxic, they are absolutely insane. How can anyone not see that? The dem’s have signed on with the NWO/WEF to destroy our country in record time. The sad thing is that you don’t see many conservatives fighting against their plans either. This is some scary S – – T

ANYONE running as a Democrat can expect the midle of the roaders ( AMERICA’S BACKBONE ) to swing to the Republicans, leaving them only a Dem base to work from. And, in Ohio, that ain’t much of a base! We need Congressmen and Senators who first are loyal to those who voted for them, NOT ANY political party! Too many Dems are like lemmings, and all they do is follow the leaders in lock step, over the cliff…
