Congressman Tim Ryan issued a statement Monday about DeSantis’ visit:

“San Francisco fraud JD Vance’s last visit to Ohio went so poorly that after leaving the state yet again last week to campaign in Texas, Vance is bringing his out-of-state friends back to the Buckeye State in a desperate attempt to clean up his mess of a campaign.”

Ryan was referring to Vance’s address at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas on Friday.
