JD Vance is the author of the bestselling book Hillbilly Elegy. He has just announced his intention to run for U.S. Senate in Ohio as a Republican.
Vance’s views are very much in line with Trump supporters. He believes that middle class Americans have a right to be angry about being sold out by their own government.
He should do very well in this race.
