Endorsements Add to Growing Momentum Behind America First Candidate

 CANTON, OH – U.S. Senate candidate Jane Timken announced the joint endorsements today of U.S. Senators Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Joni Ernst of Iowa, and Deb Fischer of Nebraska. 

“West Virginia and Ohio not only share a border, but face many of the same issues including combating the opioid epidemic, protecting our American energy jobs, and strengthening our workforce through education and skilled training,” said Senator Capito. “I’ve come to know Jane as a thoughtful and dedicated conservative leader who will tackle these issues head on and bring tenacious, positive leadership to Washington. I look forward to supporting Jane in this race and welcoming her to the Senate next year.” 

“With our Senate majority at stake, it is critical we elect strong, capable candidates who will advance bold, conservative solutions to strengthen America. I believe Jane Timken’s conservative principles and tireless work ethic make her uniquely qualified to win and help us hold the line in the Senate against the Radical Left,” said Senator Ernst. “As a fellow Midwesterner, Jane understands the challenges our farmers and small businesses face, and I look forward to working alongside another powerful mom and female in the U.S. Senate.” 

“I am proud to support Jane Timken for this important race that could determine control of the Senate,” said Senator Fischer. “Jane is a pro-Life, pro-agriculture, and pro-military candidate that understands our nation must always lead with strength, not weakness. Jane Timken will be a powerful voice in the Senate who will help protect our national security, advance policies to strengthen American agriculture, and promote strong American families.”  

“I’m incredibly proud to have the endorsements of Senator Shelley Moore Capito, Senator Joni Ernst, and Senator Deb Fischer,” said Timken. “They are fierce leaders for their states who work to advance forward-looking, conservative solutions that strengthen communities and our nation. I look forward to standing shoulder-to-shoulder with them as a reinforcement against the Schumer-Democrat agenda that is hitting American families with sky-high inflation, record border crossings, and weakened security.” 

Today’s endorsements add to the growing enthusiasm behind Timken’s candidacy. Last week, Senator Rob Portman threw his support behind Timken to fill his seat, joining over 180 Ohio elected officials, Former White House Senior Counselor Kellyanne Conway, House GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, and conservative women’s groups VIEWPAC, Maggie’s List, and Winning for Women.

U.S. Senate Candidate Jane Timken’s Statement on Russian Invasion into Ukraine

February 21, 2022

CANTON, OH – U.S. Senate candidate Jane Timken released the following statement on Russia’s disregard for Ukrainian sovereignty and it’s deployment of forces: 

“It is no coincidence that Vladimir Putin is invading Ukraine under Joe Biden’s weak and feckless leadership. From day one, Biden emboldened Russia by giving them a new START treaty with no conditions, declaring only 16 infrastructure entities ‘off-limits’ after the Colonial Pipeline hack, and ceding American energy dominance to Putin by greenlighting the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline and canceling the Keystone XL Pipeline.

Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump’s ‘peace through strength’ doctrine worked, and as a U.S. Senator, I would have pushed long ago for crushing economic sanctions against Russia and vital military aid for Ukraine. 

While I am 100% opposed to sending U.S. troops to Ukraine and believe intervening militarily would be a mistake, Biden must immediately impose sanctions and respond with strength, including putting an end to the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline. 

I believe ‘America First’ means protecting American security interests at home and abroad, and a Russian-controlled Ukraine will directly impact American energy prices causing Ohioans to pay more at the gas pump, fuel food inflation, and further disrupt supply chains while sending a blaring notice to China, North Korea, and Iran that America and our allies are vulnerable.

Former Obama-Biden official Robert Gates once said that Biden has ‘been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.’ Biden can now add the fall of Afghanistan, the rise of the Taliban, an emboldened China and Iran, and the beginning of Putin’s attempt to rebuild the Soviet Union to that humiliating list. Americans are less safe because of Joe Biden and Democrat leadership.”


Jane Timken Launches New Statewide TV Ad Taking Aim at Opponents Who “Overcompensate”

February 18, 2022

CANTON, OH – Jane Timken, candidate for U.S. Senate, announced a new statewide TV ad titled “Overcompensate.”

The script reads: 
“I’m Jane Timken. We all know guys who overcompensate for their inadequacies, and that description fits the guys in the Senate race to a T.

Well, I’m different. I’m the MAGA conservative with a backbone.

As your GOP Chairman, I turned Ohio into Trump country. And as your next Senator, I’ll fight for stronger borders, American jobs, and parents’ rights.

I approve this message because I’m Trump tough, and I put America First.”

“In a field of candidates who quit on Ohioans, bashed President Trump and his policies, or are trying to overcompensate for their lack of record through big money, I am the true, America First candidate that has been fighting for Ohio,” said Timken. “As Ohio’s next United States Senator, I will be a firewall against the radical Democrat agenda of soaring inflation, open borders, rising crime, and a weakened America that has been a disaster for this country.”

 Watch Timken’s statewide television ad, “Overcompensate,” HERE.

 The six-figure buy is an extension of the campaign’s earlier paid media blitz on Fox News Channel and continued messaging campaign. Timken’s paid advertising bolsters an unparalleled field operation and grassroots efforts on the ground in Ohio.

Just this week, Timken secured two major endorsements. Retiring Senator Rob Portman endorsed Timken as his successor and former Trump Adviser Kellyanne Conway joined the campaign as a Senior Strategist.

These endorsements follow over 180+ Ohio conservatives, House GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, and conservative women’s groups Maggie’s List, VIEWPAC, and Winning for Women who have also thrown their support behind Timken.

Greene County Commissioner and Veteran Rick Perales Endorses Jane Timken for U.S. Senate

February 17, 2022

Adds to Week of Continued Endorsements and Momentum

CANTON, OH – U.S. Senate candidate Jane Timken is proud to announce the endorsement today of Greene County Commissioner and Veteran Rick Perales. This comes on the heels of major endorsements this week from retiring Senator Rob Portman and Former Trump Adviser Kellyanne Conway.

“As a proud veteran of the United States Air Force, I am thrilled to endorse Jane Timken for Ohio’s open U.S. Senate seat. I have seen firsthand Jane’s willingness to listen to the issues that challenge Ohio’s veterans, law enforcement, and first responders, and I am excited to get in the trenches with someone who leads from the front. After previously considering others in this race, my support for Jane has come after observing her dedication to Wright Patterson Air Force Base, and the impact that it has on the Dayton region, and the great state of Ohio.” – Veteran and Greene County Commissioner Rick Perales 

“Our military veterans and their families truly understand what freedom and sacrifice mean, “ said Timken. “As a U.S. Senator, I will always fight for the men and women who put their lives on the line for our country. This is not lip service for me. Here in Ohio, we must have a fierce advocate for Wright Patterson AFB, while also fighting for veterans around the state who have been failed by bureaucracy in the VA.”

Perales’ support adds to the over 180 grassroots endorsements from Ohio conservatives, as well as from House GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, and conservative women’s groups Maggie’s List, VIEWPAC and Winning for Women. 

These boost an unmatched statewide field program with over one million voter contacts made and Timken County Chairs and individual donor support in all 88 counties. Learn more about Jane Timken and her campaign for U.S. Senate HERE.


U.S. Senate Candidate Jane Timken’s Statement on Biden’s Visit to Ohio

February 17, 2022

CANTON, OH – U.S. Senate candidate Jane Timken released the following statement: 

“Joe Biden is coming to Trump country today to try and tout his ‘successes,’ but all Ohioans see are failures. Failure to get inflation under control, failure to secure the southern border, failure to address rising crime, and failure to keep Americans safe on the world stage.  

Biden will find no welcome here – not even from Democrats’ anointed choice for the Senate, Tim Ryan, who conveniently has a scheduling conflict. Even Ryan knows how toxic the Biden agenda has been for Ohioans, but that hasn’t stopped him from rubber-stamping it while in Washington.  

This litany of disasters and the constant betrayal of Ohio values is exactly why I’m running for the U.S. Senate. I will reverse the destruction of the radical Left, put the America First agenda front and center, and be a true champion for Ohio families, businesses and workers.”


ICYMI: Jane Timken Earns Back to Back Endorsements from U.S. Senator Rob Portman and Former Trump Adviser Kellyanne Conway

February 17, 2022

U.S. Senate candidate Jane Timken landed two huge endorsements this week. Retiring Senator Rob Portman endorsed Timken to be his successor while former Trump Adviser Kellyanne Conway joined the Timken team as a supporter and Senior Strategist. 

What They Are Saying: 

Cincinnati Enquirer:

“In a statement provided to The (Cincinnati) Enquirer’s political columnist Jason Williams, Portman lauded Timken’s work as chair of the Ohio Republican Party and said she’s best equipped to “advance conservative Republican policies to help Ohio workers and families.”

Fox News:

“Retiring Ohio Sen. Rob Portman Wednesday endorsed Jane Timken in the crowded GOP primary to replace him, the second major endorsement for Timken in as many days.”


“This is a major, if unsurprising, development in the Ohio Senate GOP primary. Portman carries decades-long, close ties to state’s GOP power brokers and donors. Will be following how Trump and allies respond, not only in terms of endorsements, but $.”

National Journal:

“Big Development in #OHSEN primary…’I am confident in her ability to win both the primary and general elections.'”   

“Expect influx of money – at least $850k – from donors who committed to give if
and when Portman was on board.” 
WEWS Cleveland:

“Big Move in the Republican Ohio Senate race as Rob Portman chimes in on his potential successor…”

“Kellyanne Conway has endorsed Jane Timken for Senate: ‘In a field of click-bait candidates, celebrities and rich guys trying to buy this election, Jane stands out as the thoughtful leader, mom on a mission, and problem-solver ready to tackle the issues facing Ohio.'”


ICYMI: Cincinnati Enquirer: Disdain for law enforcement in this country must end

February 15, 2022

Cincinnati Enquirer
By Jane Timken, candidate for U.S. Senate

“Across the country, 30 law enforcement officers were shot in the line of duty in January alone. In 2021, intentional killings of officers reached a 20-year high. Meanwhile, violent crime spiked across the country as 14 major Democrat-run cities, including Columbus and Toledo, broke homicide records.

There is a war being waged on the police, and beneath this backdrop of violence, lies a silent White House and a complicit Democrat Party.

…Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan, my likely Democrat opponent in the U.S. Senate race, has even accused police officers of being a leading cause of death for young men – a totally false and irresponsible claim.

The dramatic rise in crime and the escalating violence against police is a direct result of this harmful rhetoric and the unmitigated disaster that is bail reform.

Biden and Democrats have spent the last two years telling criminals that if they break the law, we won’t punish you, but telling police officers that if they enforce the law, we will punish you. At the same time, left-wing governors and prosecutors, many funded by liberal billionaire George Soros, promote weak bail reform policies that allow repeat violent criminals to go free on the streets.

As Ohio’s next senator, I fiercely believe that instead of defunding the police, we should be defending the police!

One of my top priorities as U.S. Senator will be to kick the Department of Justice into action. It should go without saying, but the DOJ needs to be more focused on prosecuting violent criminals than prosecuting parents at school board meetings. 

Finally, on a more local level, we have to vote out liberal prosecutors and support tough-on-crime prosecutors like Hamilton County’s Joe Deters. Prosecutor Deters knows better than most the Soros-machine that is trying to systematically dismantle law and order in this country, but we have to fight back. That is why I was proud to work so hard as Ohio Republican Party Chair to ensure Prosecutor Deters’ reelection in 2020, and why I’m very proud to have his endorsement in this U.S. Senate primary, along with the support of many sheriffs and law enforcement officials across the state.

One of the major pillars of my Senate platform is ensuring Ohio’s communities are safe. We can’t have thriving schools or booming businesses without first having safe communities, and we can’t have safe communities without the work of police officers.

On the campaign trail, I talk regularly with law enforcement, tour sheriff’s departments, and have even done ride-alongs to get first-hand experience of what police officers face every single day.

The disdain for law enforcement in this country must end. No more fallen heroes. No more demoralizing, denigrating, or defunding the police.

As Ohio’s next senator, I will always stand strong for the men and women in blue. It’s past time we treat criminals like criminals and police officers like the heroes they are!”

Former Trump Adviser Kellyanne Conway Endorses Jane Timken for U.S. Senate, Takes Role as Senior Strategist

February 15, 2022

CANTON, OH – U.S. Senate candidate Jane Timken announced the endorsement today of Kellyanne Conway, Former 2016 Campaign Manager and Senior Counselor to President Trump. Conway will also be joining the Timken campaign as a Senior Strategist.

“Jane Timken is a true MAGA champion who was there for President Trump in 2016 and throughout his presidency when many others, including her opponents, hid or stayed on the sidelines. She continues to be a rock-ribbed supporter of the America First agenda,” said Conway. “In a field of click-bait candidates, celebrities and rich guys trying to buy this election, Jane stands out as the thoughtful leader, mom on a mission, and problem-solver ready to tackle the issues facing Ohio. Jane also has the best chance of beating radical, temperamental Tim Ryan in the general election. I urge all Ohioans who support the America First agenda to rally behind Jane Timken as the conservative Ohio needs in the U.S. Senate.”

“I am honored to have Kellyanne Conway’s support and guidance as we head into the most crucial part of this campaign,” said Timken. “Kellyanne’s strategic insights and leadership helped support President Trump’s incredible successes for this country, and she will be an important team member in the fight to protect that progress and reverse the destruction of the radical Left.” 

Today’s endorsement adds to the growing enthusiasm behind Timken’s America First candidacy. In addition to over 180 endorsements from grassroots conservatives in Ohio, Timken has received endorsements from House GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, and conservative women’s groups VIEWPAC, Maggie’s List, and Winning for Women. Learn more about Jane Timken and her campaign for U.S. Senate HERE.


U.S. Senator Rob Portman Endorses Jane Timken for U.S. Senate

February 16, 2022

Key Endorsement Adds to Growing Momentum

 CINCINNATI, OH – U.S. Senator Rob Portman announced today that he is endorsing Jane Timken in the U.S. Senate race to fill his seat.     

“I believe Jane Timken is the best candidate to advance conservative Republican policies to help Ohio workers and families.  Jane is smart and hard working, and understands the needs of Ohioans.  I believe Ohioans would be proud to have her representing us in the United States Senate.  She has a record of success, including working tirelessly for years to support Republicans at every level.  She led the effort as Ohio Republican Party chair to elect Republicans to all statewide constitutional offices in 2018, and to win Ohio by 8 points for President Trump in 2020,” said Portman.  “I am confident in her ability to win both the primary and the general elections, ensuring that this Senate seat remains Republican with a 50-50 Senate, and so much at stake.”

“Senator Portman is a thoughtful, conservative leader who has served Ohio with distinction, and I’m honored to have his support,” said Timken. “Rob successfully led the effort to pass President Trump’s tax cuts, is the leader in the U.S. Senate in fighting the opioid epidemic, and has consistently delivered results for Ohio on issue after issue.  He is a champion for the unborn, a protector of our 2nd Amendment rights, and worked with President Trump to advance three conservative justices to the U.S. Supreme Court.”

Portman’s endorsement adds to the growing enthusiasm behind Timken’s candidacy and is a clear shift in this race. Recent polling shows that Timken, a first-time candidate, has surged on the ballot and is within striking distance of the lead.  

Senator Portman is one of the most successful elected officials in Ohio history. He was first elected to the United States Senate in 2010, winning by 18 points. He was reelected in 2016 by an even more impressive 21 points, winning 84 of Ohio’s 88 counties and receiving over 3.1 million votes – the third highest vote total for any elected official in Ohio’s history.

He has built a reputation in the Senate as a respected conservative leader who can bring people together to deliver results.

Portman was instrumental in getting a number of President Trump’s major legislative accomplishments through the Senate.  His leadership was critical to Congress passing the historic tax cuts and tax reform, and his strong and steadfast support publicly and behind the scenes helped send Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court.  

President Trump has praised Portman on numerous occasions, and when President Trump was here in Ohio during the campaign, he said that Rob is “a friend of mine who’s an incredibly respected man in the United States Senate. When he speaks, we all listen, including the president.”
