Amid a full court press to showcase their support and loyalty to Donald Trump in hopes of securing the former president’s endorsement, an already contentious battle between the leading contenders for the GOP Senate nomination in Ohio is turning increasingly brutal.

"Who’s cheering for the wrong team? J.D. Vance," charges the announcer in a new TV ad by rival Republican candidate Mike Gibbons. "Vance called President Trump an ‘idiot’ and ‘reprehensible,’"
