House GOP campaign arm cancels ad buys for JR Majewski, the embattled Ohio candidate

The campaign arm of House Republicans has canceled a major ad buy for a Republican candidate in Ohio after a report said he lied about his military service.

The Associated Press reported this week that JR Majewski, who is competing in a northwest Ohio district, exaggerated or misrepresented parts of his resume, including claiming he traveled to Afghanistan when records show he helped load planes at an air base. in Qatar.

The report had an immediate impact on the race against Rep. Marcy Kaptur, a Democrat seen as vulnerable.

Politico reports that the Republican National Congressional Committee has canceled plans to spend $960,000 in the Toledo market to boost Majewski, a Trump-aligned candidate who could still win the race in the district that was redrawn in a way that hurts Kaptur.

The uproar over Majewski reflects broader concerns about the kind of candidates Republican voters select in primaries, often under Trump’s influence. He worries that candidates will fare poorly in the general election, particularly in a series of Senate races that the GOP stands to win.

Majewski has touted his experience as a veteran, saying in an August 2021 tweet, “I would gladly get dressed and go back to Afghanistan tonight and do my best to save Americans who were left behind.”

His campaign declined to comment directly to the AP on questions surrounding his deployment claims.

“I am proud to have served my country,” Majewski said in a statement to the wire service. “My achievements and record are under attack, meanwhile, career politician Marcy Kaptur has a forty-year record of failure for my Toledo community, which is why I am running for Congress.”
