Senate hopeful J.D. Vance apologizes for criticizing Trump as 'reprehensible' in deleted tweets
J.D. Vance, a venture capitalist and best-selling author who last week entered the Republican primary for Ohio's open Senate seat in 2022, apologized for criticizing former President Donald Trump in now-deleted tweets.
In deleted tweets first discovered by CNN's KFile, Vance wrote in 2016 that he would not vote for Trump in the presidential election and instead support Evan McMullin, a former CIA operations officer who ran as an independent. Vance also called Trump "reprehensible."
