Joe Biden expected his first term in office to be a breeze.
But it’s turned into one disaster after another.
And Democrats were infuriated after this Republican just compared Joe Biden to this former failed President.
Ohio Republican Senator Rob Portman is retiring in 2022, creating an open seat in the Buckeye State.
As one of the most-watched races in 2022, nearly a dozen Republican candidates are already running for the seat.
Bernie Moreno, a wealthy car dealer from Cleveland, is one of the leading Republicans in the race.
A first time candidate and an immigrant from Colombia, Moreno’s campaign is emphasizing his status as a pro-Trump political outsider.
Kellyanne Conway, Former Senior Counselor to President Trump, and Ric Grinell, former Director of National Intelligence for Trump, have both endorsed Moreno’s campaign.
And Moreno is now making waves after producing a hard-hitting TV ad that compares Joe Biden to failed Democrat President Jimmy Carter.
In the ad, Moreno says “my parents came here for the American dream… A dream briefly crushed by Jimmy Carter.”
“Now Joe Biden and the Socialists are re-running the same playbook,” Moreno continued.
The ad concluded with Moreno saying, “I’ll stop Biden before he destroys America.”
Moreno’s campaign is dumping $4 million into the TV ad, making it currently the biggest TV ad buy of the Primary.
Moreno’s $4 million ad buy, which already received national attention from outlets like Fox News, is expected to give his campaign some much-needed momentum in the race.
Of course, Moreno isn’t the first person to compare Biden to Jimmy Carter.
Donald Trump, Jr. previously referred to Joe Biden as “Jimmy Carter 2.0” because of skyrocketing inflation.
However, according to Donald Trump, the comparisons are unfair because “Biden has created crisis after crisis” whereas Jimmy Carter “mishandled crisis after crisis.”
But with energy prices soaring and inflation skyrocketing, more Republicans will likely start comparing Joe Biden to Jimmy Carter.
