U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci, R-Wadsworth, is expected to announce his bid for the seat Thursday, while "Hillbilly Elegy" author J.D. Vance also is considering a run.

According to several media outlets, during a private meeting with lawmakers Thursday, Trump stunningly questioned why the USA would admit Haitians or people from "sh**hole" countries in Africa, expressing a preference instead for immigrants from Norway, a majority white nation.

Asked about Trump's "shithole countries" comment - about accepting immigrants from majority-black countries - Renacci said, "Well, look, I've said all along, the president many times says what people are thinking".

"Let's judge the president after what we've done - let's not judge the president on what he says".

"I always say judge the president after four years".

The congressman was running for governor but left the race after Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel abruptly dropped out of the Republican Senate primary last week, leaving the party scrambling to find a viable candidate in the competitive state. She called them "vile", as well as "un-American, racist and cruel".

"It's a bad comment", Kasich said.

Brown's campaign said Brown had his best off-year of fundraising ever and said 113,806 individual donors gave an average contribution of $44 to his campaign. "We all make mistakes, but there's no excuse and when you do it you have to apologize".

Kilmeade ended the interview by noting that Renacci is running for Ohio Senate in 2018. Renacci told Kilmeade Trump promised to help with his campaign, and that he thinks "a lot like the president". "I was there on Wednesday, and, look, they asked me to jump into this race", he said. "And the president knows that I've supported his agenda from then all the way through to today".

"I have been a businessman for 30 years", said Renacci.

Renacci is banking Ohioans will agree with him. "That means he is going to have to lurch further to the right than he usually is, and he is going to have to defend the president".

"Jim believes that one of our nation's greatest strengths is that we are a proud nation of immigrants from all backgrounds, ethnicities and corners of the globe-a view Jim believes the president shares as well", Slepian said.
