The Ohio primary offers one small measure of the influence Governor Kristi Noem is building with her nationwide campaigning.
Last Tuesday, Timken came in fifth in a seven-person primary, winning 5.9% of the Republican vote. She lost to J.D. Vance, a billionaire stooge who wrote a book to make white people feel like they are the oppressed class.
So pay attention, out-of-state campaigners: if you want to lower your primary vote, recruit Kristi Noem to campaign for you.
