Former Trump official Robert Lighthizer endorses JD Vance: ‘He will stand up to China’

Former U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer announced his support for Ohio Republican senatorial candidate J.D. Vance on Wednesday.

Vance, who is a venture capitalist and the author of Hillbilly Elegy, previously criticized former President Donald Trump during the 2016 election but has since changed his stance to support the “America First” agenda. He has received a slew of positive media coverage on right-of-center outlets, including on Fox News’s Tucker Carlson Tonight.
