Vance Rips Cleveland Paper Over Cartoon ‘Racism’

  • Ohio GOP Senate candidate J.D. Vance ripped the Cleveland Plain Dealer for what it regarded as racism against the candidate and his Indian-American wife.
  • The cartoon depicted Vance complaining about the name change for the Cleveland Guardians, who used to be known as the Indians.
  • “Only Indians name change I support is my wife’s to ‘Senator J.D. Vance’s Spouse,’” the cartoon depicts Vance saying.
  • In a statement, Vance chief strategist Jai Chabria called on the Plain Dealer to “condemn their actions immediately, or perhaps this racism is OK because it’s against a Republican.”
