Today, Bernie Moreno announced that former Trump ambassador Lana Marks is joining the steering committee to support his campaign for US Senate in Ohio. Marks is an internationally renowned CEO and joins a growing list of conservative leaders who are supporting Bernie Moreno. The steering committee was instrumental in helping Bernie Moreno outraise all competitors in his first fundraising quarter.
“Like I did, Bernie Moreno moved to America and, through hard work and determination, achieved the American Dream. As a businessman and a natural leader, he has a track record of success, not just a track record of talking. Bernie Moreno is the clear choice in Ohio. He knows that the American Dream will not be around if we do not strive to keep it alive for the next generation.. I am proud to be joining the growing list of ambassadors and business leaders who support Bernie Moreno for Senate,” said Marks.
