‘America First’ conservative David J. Taylor announces campaign for Ohio’s 2nd Congressional District

Submitted Article

America First conservative and outsider businessman David J. Taylor announced his campaign for the Republican nomination in Ohio’s 2nd Congressional District on Thursday.

Like President Donald J. Trump, David J. Taylor is a political outsider and a businessman who is running to fight for hardworking Ohio families, not the special interests or the Columbus or D.C. establishment. In Congress, he will build the wall, stop Joe Biden’s disastrous agenda and strive to carry on the legacy of effective, conservative leadership left by Congressman Brad Wenstrup.

In conjunction with his announcement, Taylor announced an initial personal investment of $1,000,000 in the campaign and released his first campaign ad, “America First.”

“Hardworking Ohio families deserve an American First conservative in Washington who will fight for their interests and values against the disastrous agenda of Joe Biden and the special interests,” said Taylor. “Like President Trump, I’m a businessman and a political outsider who won’t sit back and watch Joe Biden’s inflation at home, crime on the streets, chaos on the border and weakness abroad destroy America.

“I’m blessed to run a successful concrete business my family built from scratch, supporting jobs for hardworking Ohioans for decades. Career politicians talk, but as a businessman I know how to get things done and support greater prosperity for Ohio small businesses, communities and families.

“I want to thank Congressman Wenstrup for his immeasurable service to our communities and his lifetime of service to our country,” Taylor continued. “As the next Congressman for Ohio’s Second District, I will seek to carry on Congressman Wenstrup’s legacy of effective, conservative leadership.”

Taylor resides in Amelia with his wife Charity and three daughters. Learn more at
