Loser Ohio GOP Congressional Candidate Considers Dropping Out (again)

Nuff Said

J.R. Majewski, the controversial Ohio congressional candidate, has told people he plans to drop out of his battleground House race just days after early voting began in the Republican primary. Majewski, who lost his 2022 bid after news reports indicated he lied about serving in combat in Afghanistan,✱ confirmed to POLITICO that he was seriously considering ending his 2024 campaign but said he had not yet made a decision. He said he told people “what they want to hear” to keep them “at bay” while he figured out his future.

He acknowledged that his recent controversy over disparaging comments✱✱ about the Special Olympics had changed the dynamic of the race and that he may struggle in a general election against Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur.

Majewski told at least two people that he is in talks to take a position with former President Donald Trump, according to people familiar with the conversations. Majewski confirmed to POLITICO that he had briefly talked with Trump’s team but denied that those conversations had been about job opportunities.


✱ In 2022 “Campaigning for a northwestern Ohio congressional seat, Republican J.R. Majewski presented himself as an Air Force combat veteran who deployed to Afghanistan after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, once describing “tough” conditions including a lack of running water that forced him to go more than 40 days without a shower.

Military documents obtained by The Associated Press through a public records request tell a different story.

They indicate Majewski never deployed to Afghanistan but instead completed a six-month stint helping to load planes at an air base in Qatar, a longtime U.S. ally that is a safe distance from the fighting.” He also claimed his time in Afghanistan is still classified.


✱✱ “Majewski said the following recently during his appearance on a podcast:

“No matter how hard you try, arguing on the internet is like being in the Special Olympics. No matter how good you perform, you’re still fucking retarded at the end of the day.”
